Are you getting power from one or two wires at the coil with the key on or off?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Power from all wires to coil when turning over only two wires 10.5ams one 6.2
Expert:  peterpete190 replied 1 year ago.

From what I can tell here it looks like you should only have one wire with voltage at pin 2.The other 2 wires should have ground pulses from the engine computer as the engine is cranked over and running.If you have voltage signals on any of the other 2 wires this can indicate that the wiring is either shorted leading from the coil to the engine computer or that the engine computer itself has an issue needing replaced.
