The way I have read the threads, almost all say you really nead a digital meter to get true reading. I got one from Harbor Freight at a good price and makes a big difference in the reading you should get. Tried a meter gauge and they always read it wrong. This may solve you problem.

I wasn't wanting a digital Multimeter....already own three...another one aint going to tell me anything different...what i wanted was to fallow the test as he did it with the test light because a multimeter fluctuates too much, where all i needed to know was open/closed...test light works much better for that

Test light is very safe on this vehicle, however you have to know the application that you are using it in;
Where a bulb may exstract say 20 milliamps to light the bulb, when working around electronics a circuit may only have an allowable drain of say 12 milliamps, in which case the bulb in the test light will fry the internal organs of that circuit; Slim you can buy a computer safe test light for a few bucks that has an led in it,
Safe for any application on earth.
