Turn it to DC put the red side to the positive lug on the alternator and the black to a ground like the battery - post.

The battery with the engine off should read a little more than 12 volts. Start the engine and it should read a little more than 14 volts. You can test from the battery posts to avoid getting a test lead caught in the belt.
