Hi and welcome to Just answer.

Initially, I think you already know what the error code p0353 means. However, to make it sure I will give it. P0353 - Ignition coil #3 open circuit or shorted to ground or to 12V.

Since you already swap the coil and your negative terminal is getting hot. The possible problem is not the coil itself but the connection of it. The #3 coil connection is possibly shorted to ground, try to trace the line and check if there is open or burn wires.

Please response if you still have clarifications,concerns or questions.

Hope this information will be helpful.
