To check the "rest current" you simply need to connect an ammeter in series between the negative battery terminal and ground. When you have an accurate measurement you simply start removing and replacing the fuses one at a time while keeping an eye on the meter for changes. You didn't say what kiind of car you're working on or what the problem is. On newer cars certain procedures apply. You run the risk of damaging your meter if you're not careful. A little more information would be helpful. Regardless of the vehicle, make sure the key is off/out.
