    2001FLHT CARB MODEL, Stopped firing without warning. The ignition coil testing across the secondary(where plug wires go) is testing 11,500 ohms.
    The manual states it should be between 5500 & 7500 ohms. Could this be my problem? Would this keep it from firing, having to high of a reading? Any advice appreciated.
    I can't seem to get any codes, could the coil be bad and not show a code??

    Thanks

    Are you measuring between terminal B and each spark plug wire hole? Each side should be almost the same. It almost sounds like your reading Hole to Hole.

    One of your sides reads a lot higher than the other.?

    If only the secondary winding was bad, I can't see how it could post any codes for that model year..
