Remember to test all sensor coils in this manner if your engine is equipped with more than one. On new engines, this “coil” may actually be a Hall effect sensor, in which case an ohmmeter test will tell you nothing. Although specialized testers are available to test Hall effect sensors in automotive applications, I’m not aware of one available as a dedicated device for outboard engine applications.
