I used a megger meter to test my MG2 in a first generation prius. I have measured from the 3 winds to chassis an get near 200 Meg ohms. I measure resistance between the winds an I get like 2-3 ohms. I know there are 3 winds an they are in a parallel circuit with one another. What I don't know is how to tell if the winds are shorted within themselves or each other. Does anyone know what the resistance should measure in a healthy stator winding? Appreciate any an all help I can get here. Thanks much, Hank

A shorted winding wil read 0 resistance while an open will read infinite res. You will need the known value of the actual winding you are testing. You can try www.alldatadiy.com.
