IDEAL 61-065 does not have continuity function and therefore does not need batteries. If you have different model (like 61-076) then check if leads are good first.

DC testing


No, you can't use an Ideal 61-065 tester to test a car battery. It is only for 100 volts AC/DC to 600 volts AC/DC.
A meter like this will work:

Actually, the easiest way to test a car battery without a meter is to turn on the lights. If the lights shine bright like they are supposed too for a minute or so, the battery is maintaining the correct voltage.

Usage Repair


the current reading on a tester is independent of the battery in the tester. The battery is there to provide a tiny amount of current so you can read the resistance on a circuit in ohms.

What probably happened is that the useage selector switch was in the wrong position when a measurement was made for voltage of other and being in the current position created a short and the current measurement circuit was burned out.

for more details, please follow up with questions/comments
