    someone please verify my findings

    my daughter was using my wife's ski('96 slt780) and got to shore and shut it off. she went to restart it and it wouldn't re-start. got it home and and checked, no spark. checked primary winding on all coils and thats good. checked secondary windings and got nothing on all 3. just to make sure i'm checking right, black wire on coil to sparkplug wire with cap off should 3.3ohms and i got nothing. coils are bad am i correct?

    Yes, black wire on coil to secondary (plug wire) with no cap (boot). Should be 3.3k ohms.

    Honestly, I find it hard to believe that all 3 coils failed at the same time. Dive a little bit deeper.

    i checked the the exciter, pulser, and trigger coils and they check out good. the only thing left is the cdi correct. is there a way to check that. is there something else i should check?

    No way to test a CDI.

    You just have to swap it out with a known good 1.

    Have you checked the kill switch for possible grounding?

    How good is the battery?

    All connections clean and tight?

    Any water inside the elec box?
