So I tried to use it on the idle control valve like Steve said, when connected my idle was about 1300 rpm the same as if it was not connected. SO steve you are right I am not getting a circuit. I have attached a picture of how I have this connected on the car. I am using my multimeter in mA setting.
Don't mean to insult you here, but everyone needs reminding of the simple things occasionally:

Secondary school physics - remember amps are read between 2 points, not across point like voltage

I'm sure you had it right anyway..! I've made that mistake before
