Question about Ibanez V5 pickups

I have 5 Ibanez V5 pickups, 2 bridge & neck sets and a single unmarked one. I'm trying to figure out if I may have a bad set or a bum coil in one. Set #1 has a bare & a white wire, the neck reads 16.3 & bridge 17.2. Set #2 has a bare & white wire, the neck reads 12.4 and the bridge 13.6. The single one has a red, white & bare. Red & bare gives no reading, white & bare no reading & red & white reads 8.4.

So I'm trying to figure out what's up with the inconsistencies.

For the single pickup I'm thinking I have a bum coil. Does that sound right or could it be something else?

My other question is why do the 2 sets have such different resistances? Does the set that has a resistance of 13 possibly have something wrong with them? Or was the manufacturing of the V5 pickups inconsistent & that would explain the difference in resistances?

Thanks n advance for any help.
