ok, I tested the battery with the meter by connecting it in series with the neg cable. I removed the cable and connected one of the meter's prongs to it and the other meters prong to the neg battery post. Now the meter has 3 amp settings; 100ma, 10ma, 1amp. on all of the settings the needle pins. I switched the setting to voltage and it shows 14+ volts. I tried it with the cable still connected to the batt post and it shows nothing. I noticed that the fuses in the truck are always hot and few under the hood remain hot all the time. Also I tried probing the battery normally by going from neg to poss with meter and it reads 14+ volts and it pins the needle when I switch to amps. What am I doing wrong??? Thanks Guys!
