I have an SL 320 and it is the second time that the ignition coil have been burn by its self. I have noticed that there was low voltage supply in 2 of them.
I have also checked the battery and the alternator, both seem to be ok.

Hi
Check voltage on red/blue wires to each coil. Should be battery voltage. Also ohm check each coil across terminals, then from each terminal to ground.
Let me know
Thanks for donate
