Mike, I don't know the nominal resistance of the relay coil, but the
solenoid has two coils -- the "pull-in" coil and the "holding coil".  The
pull-in coil should be 0.5 ohms and the holding coil 12 ohms.

What problems are you having with the overdrive?

I am troubleshooting electrical issues with my overdrive; does anyone know
the nominal resistance (ohms) of the coil in the relay (on the firewall) and
the resistance of the solenoid? 

Thanks, Mike
