You used to get this problem with germanium transistors not silicon. I suspect that something is not what you think it is. Like the ground not being connected or the pin on the arduino not being defined as an output in the sketch.
The coil resistance is 270 Ohms and the coil voltage is rated for 12v, although I am powering it with 10v.
