If your lights are dimming with the blinkers on and stereo off, then it sounds like you might have other problems.. Don't bother with the resistance measurements; measure voltage drops instead. resistance measurements are pretty meaningless.. to demonstrate this, tell me if a 0.5 ohm resistance is acceptable.. then apply ohm's law to that using 200 amps (starter current).. what's the voltage drop?
