Well we tried, and no matter what we did we couldn't get a power reading on a single wire The multimeter works, as we tried measuring the voltage of a battery, and that worked perfectly. We even took the wire out of the leads to try to get a better connection, but that didn't work. We think that we might not be finding a proper ground. We were using the metal radio bracket (also scuffed some of the coating off), so maybe that'* isolated from ground. We couldn't really see any other metal surface or screw that seemed to be grounded.

I think we'll either look for a test light or just find some car place that will hopefully be able to measure it better than we can.

If all else fails, you can usually find a good ground on the emergency brake assembly... and of course you have the key ON or in Accessory... and meter in DC volt function (Not AC). Might want to test the meter on a known DC source, like across the battery posts. That will tell you that you have it set right and that it is functioning properly.

Yep, everything was set properly. Will try the assembly.
