    Obviously you are not using an unregulated mod seeing you get an error [atty short]
    Your ohms may be too low for your regulated mod to fire

    How many wraps and on what size mandrel ? also what mod are you putting it on? The message generally means that your coil lower than your mod will fire. Try adding more wraps to your coil or dropping back to 26g wire. If your putting it on a vamo or a provari you may not be able to fit enough 24g under the top cap to reach the 1ohm min, and the 15 watts they produce will take all day to light the coil up.

    If you have no luck PM me Im on night shift and about to sleep just now but Ill give you a call when I wake up and see if I can help.

    My biggest fear is that I might die and my missus will sell my vape gear for what I told her it cost

    If you can't work this issue out, you shouldn't be messing rebuildables.

    Multimeter or ohm meter are a must have, and with a clone there is a SLIGHT possibility that the RDA has an internal short.

    I recommend an ASPIRE ATLANTIS setup if you want to blow clouds, you shouldn't be messing with 24g and rebuildables without the knowledge or the appropriate testing equipment.

    If it was a mech, it might have gone BOOM already.

    Please stay safe.

    Try 28 gauge. You don't need to fry things.

    Your snipped wire may be hanging too long and touching the edge of the chimney
