Connect the RED probe(+) to the Pointed side of the battery and the other probe(-) to the other side of the battery.
Also try these simple trick to find out your remote control working or not....
Point the remote control towards the Camera of a Mobile Camera phone,with the camera on. While pressing remote, we can see a light (Infra Red) coming from its IR LED through the Mobile Camera if the Remote is working.

We have a Hisense TV. The remote does not work right. We put new batteries in it and it still doesn't work right. Hard to shut off and change channels.

Assuming it is the original remote, that is all the testing possible. Taking out the batteries, let it sit for 30 seconds and put in fresh batteries is my only other idea. It sounds like the remote is defective or was dropped or has liquid damage. If you have a universal remote, program it for your TV and try it. If this IS a universal remote, sometimes you need to try different programming codes. Best of luck!

Remote does not work

easy way to check remotes if there working, is to use the camera on your phone and point the remote at the phone and hit some buttons, you will see the invisible UV light the remote uses threw your phone.
If no light is seen might be a battery or battery contact issue, try spinning the battery's while doing the test... KOOL huh

Check the remote control for its infrared emission. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, check the sites linked here. Before doing anything, check the battery contacts at the battery compartment of the remote control, for any rust or dust accumulated, which prevents a good battery contact. Clean the well before testing.

Can't figure out problem with civic!!

ok, the solution for it is very simple.
get it to autozone and ask them to do an alternator test to see if the alternator is producing energy if you are the kind of person that doesn't know anything about cars.
if you are a semi-skilled person then get a voltimeter and test the battery with the car on. and the positive lead with positive and negative with negative, it should read about 14 or more.
if you go to autozone or o'reilly then ask to see the voltage on their little tester. and if you see a voltage of around 14 then you can be sure that the problem is not your alternator.
thank you
if your alternator test fine then the next step would be to check your battery. turn the headlights on with car off, then voltage should not go below 10 volts when you plug the voltimeter.
