In every manual I've read and post on various forums it says to measure the resistence. It should be under 25k ohms. That doesn't make sense to me. Would a good wire have more resistence and a wire that's dying have less resistence? Can someone please explain this to me? What are other ways to test your wires?

It's supposed to be under 25K ohms, which means that if your wires are bad they will have more resistance. (meaning above 25K ohms)

Lower numbers mean that current can move more easily.

The reason bad wires have more resistance than good wires is because the individual strands of copper inside the plug-wire corrode, oxidize, and often break over time. This makes it more difficult for current to pass through the wire.

Thanks for the replys. That makes sense. What about redish brown dust in the boots? I know it means the bearings are bad if it's in the dizzy.
