For those using the well laid out and proper test procedure, remember that if you are going from the negative terminal to ground, the meter black lead goes on the battery cable and the red to ground.

Your clock will cause the meter to jump to about 50ma each second as it ticks.
IF ... everything else is off, that is about the max you should read, 50 milli amps.

If you want to see what your glow plug relay draws you will need a better meter.
