Looks more like 4 questions lol. But here goes. Basic Functions : Multiple Ranges for measuring Volts, Ohms (resistance), and Milliamps. Headlamd failure: Negative or black lead to a good ground (negative battery post,clean spot on the frame etc.) Red or positive lead to the terminals on the headlamp plug (headlight switch on). No voltage? Check for broken ...
