Mine's (as most) is an volt meter. Not very accurate, of course. Still, if the amp meter is not working you have 2 choices. Bad meter, bad connection. After checking in my stolen 1963 Stockel Auto Mechanics fundamentals book from Spencerport High School (yes, I AM that old), volt meters are connected in parallel with a circuit. Ammeters are connected in series with the circuit. Therein may be your problem. ps, ohmmeters are connected in parallel with the load with the negative side of the load unconnected to the power source. If you want, I can make a copy of this info and forward via email. If everyone wants, I can figure out (again) how to post the book info on the site. ps, this book is so old it SMELLS old.
