Brian,
   Try using Ohms Law. Just find out how much current it draws, and the
terminal voltage. Divide the terminal voltage by the amps to get the
resistance.
   Having said that, I understand that on some of the newer cars, a high
frequency AC signal is generated and passed through the traces. This may
change the readings considerably.
   You could also try using and MFJ Antennna Analyzer to see where it
resonates.
