Me thinks you need to brush up on using a meter.

1) For voltage measurements, you connect the meter in parallel to the circuit. Hooking it up in series will add the internal resistance of the meter to the circuit, and will drastically change your readings.

2) For current measurements, you connect the meter in series. If you hook it up in parallel, the meter's low internal resistance (in this setting) will probably short circuit your car and blow a fuse or worse.
