    Current measurements are made is series with the circuit or leg you wish to measure. Your meter effectively becomes PART of the circuit.
    There are lots of DMM use and instructional videos if you search for them.
    There is typically a fuse in the Amp measuring portion of a DMM so it is possible you have damaged (blown) the fuse if you are not sure of how to make such measurements.
