Since your not sure how to use the multimeter do you have a test light?Those are really easy to use. Let me know it sound's like a bad starter though I just want to be sure. Also make sure the positive battery cable to the starter is clean and tight. Make sure you check that with the negative cable unhooked from the battery. If you have a test hook the aligator clip to a ground when it doesn't start and see if you have power to the purple wire at the starter with the key in the start position. If you do bad starter. If we use the multimeter the black lead goes to the common connection on the meter and the red lead goes to the V connection on the meter. Then set the meter to 20 DC volts then ground the black lead and use the red lead to test for battery voltage at the starter purple wire with the key in the start position if you have battery voltage and the starter is inop bad starter. Let me know what you find.
