    Hello to all. How can I change a relay resistance to 11 ohms The circuit is 11.5 volts

    Why do you want to do this? Explain.

    You could put a parallel resistor next to the coil. I agree with JDT though, why? This would pull around 1A. Usually you are wanting to get the resistance up, not down, to reduce the current flow.
