Enjoy and thanks for all your help and input.
yes i understand that but you're not testing for parasitic draw. thats for when you've got unwanted current draw draining your battery.

starter draws large amounts of amperage and if you had your meter connected in series to test for starter current draw it would have blew the fuse in ur meter.
