I have a 2005 and my stator failed around 19k miles. There should be continuity between the stator wires, I would say 1-3 ohms. However if the wires are shorted to ground thats a bad thing. I decided to replace my R/R just on the chance it could of contributed to the stator failing. Some of the wires on my stator were burned in half. Something had to cause that and the R/R is what it plugs into. I followed the advice of members on here and went with Tim Parrot for my stator ($85.00), Also went with The Mosfet. And thanks Olhoss for the Mosfet refererance. I pulled my engine though did not choose the sidecover modification. I havent read alot about the do it yourself mod but I think the tolerances are to close for me to use a dremil tool on it. The two sets of wires coming out of the left side cover are for stator (3 yellow wires)and the pick-up coils, one for each cylinder. Good luck and keep us posted.
