Hire an electrician. Meter feeds are usually unfused. Any mistakes will cause a nasty fire, and draw the ire of the power company, the fire department, and your local house inspectors. You do not want to make a mistake on a 220V unfused line.

All you have to do is turn on the car into ignition area and grab a voltage meter. Find positive first, to do this, find a good ground spot on your vehicle, such as a screw or metal, than with the red meter wire, go around til you find one that makes the volt meter go up... that is your power wire. Now, go from that wire, and check for your ground wire. Hold the positive wire onto the positive spot on your vehicle, and use the black wire to check until the meter goes up, that is your ground. Now you are done.

How do you use a miltimeater?

A multimeter is used to test an electrical current. The meter is turned to "zero" to begin. The black wire is on a piece of metal to ground it. The red wire then is used to touch the wire in question. If the meter needle moves, there is a current and the meter will show how much current in volts. Multimeters bought in hardware stores should not be used to check current of larger wires.
