How to use a multimeter when testing TPS

I'm gonna buy a radio shack digital multi meter to set my TPS voltage. On the meter it has DC volts 2v,20v,200v,500v and AC volts 200v, 500v where do I set the meter to get the proper reading of .90 to .98 volts. Also is this test done with the engine on.

Key on, engine off.

Set it on 2V DC

Mine is a different model, but you can see how I do it. Grounding on the spacer stud makes no difference compared to tapping into the black wire (not on my car at least).

Use the lowest setting... 20 in your case.

Huh? I'm not sure what you're asking, but you want DC volts.
