Ignition coil test question

2001 base Prelude. I tested ignition coil. Honda specs are supposed to be .64-.78 Ohms for primary winding. My coil was testing at .1, manual says to replace. I tested 3 different coils at 3 different auto parts stores, all tested at .1 ohms. I took my coil to dealer and had them test it, they said it tested weak also. Has anyone had any experience with this? This is only a commuter car, no mods. I am willing to buy the OEM coil from the dealer, but they have to order it. Does anybody know if an Oem coil will test within spec? Secondary winding tests within spec. Thanks.

Re: Ignition coil test question

Yes oem test your ignition coil within its spec. to check your secondary coil, check the ohms between the battery terminal and where the coil output wire plugs into. Just don’t test through the output wire though.
