    It's just come to my attention that some people are having trouble with Ohms checkers. To Clarify matters here's the lowdown on what they mean..

    0.0 This reading indicates a dead short, do not use the coil until you have rectified the problem
    9.9 This reading will be displayed on box type Ohms checkers if the coil is broken or the atty does not make a connection
    Lo This usually appears on VV/VW mods when the coil is shorted or of too low a resistance for the mod to handle
    Hi This usually appears on VV/VW mods when the coil is broken or the atty is not making a connection

    Other error messages may appear on VV/VW mods, please check your Mods manual / user instructions

    If Using a multimeter to check coil resistance please ensure that the leads are plugged into the correct sockets (some meters have a seperate socket for resistance) and that the range is set to the lowest appropriate range. Before testing touch the meter probes together and ensure that the reading is 0.0, if it is not, replace the battery in your meter and try again or use a different meter. It is also good practice to take the reading from the threads and centre pin where your atty and mod will connect rather than from the coil terminals.
