That's exactly what I was doing, I didn't realize that was normal. What I didn't mention was that the positive side was at 12.xx volts and the negative side was at 6.xx volts with the forward. From what I have read this indicates a problem as they should both be at 12.xx volts with the key forward, Like I said in the other post I wasn't getting spark regardless and I replaced the coil and it started right up.If you are measuring with a DVOM, this would be normal and not indicate a problem.So I'm getting voltage at both the positive and negative terminals of the ignition coil with only the positive wire hooked up to the positive terminal. Looks like somehow I got a short inside the ignition coil. How this happened in parallel to installing the new dash harness I do not know.
