There's a pretty easy way to check. Put a test light on one of the wires and then turn the key on. If it lights up it has 12 v. Then turn the key to the start position and see if it stays lit up. If it doesn't, then move to the next wire. The ignition will turn on power to the coil, but will interrupt power to other items when the key is turned to the "start" position.
