your going at it from the wrong angle ^_^ to test a coil you need to check for resistance not electronic current "TAKE OFF YOUR COIL AND CHECK THE RESISTANCE THEN MATCH YOUR READINGS BASED ON YOUR MANUFACTURES SPECS" ALLDATA* is your best freind ^_^ #rule number one is to never test any electrical unless battery is equal to or greater than 75% charged (which is 11.75V) Your battery was probably able to show 11.88 but with a load and depending on temperuture it may drop drastically personaly i would hook up my battery to a float charger unless it really needs more juice, then i would use a more extreme and effective charging equipment
