You should have from 6 to 9 volts at the coil. You have a pink resistance wire that lowers the voltage from 12v. I would check the main yellow wire that goes from the solenoid to the headlight switch and over to the ignition switch. If you are getting 12V at the ignition switch then it's possible the resistance wire between the ignition switch and coil is bad.
