reading a multimeter?

I measured the IOD on my multimeter set on the 10 amp setting. The reading started at .3 and 30 minutes later it settled down to .01. When I switched over to the 200m or the 20m settings I didn't get a reading (also put the red lead in the proper plug). What is the .01 amp reading in mm?

Not sure exactly what you are asking. Amps uses the metric system. Amps, milliamps and microamps the most used. 1000 milliamps=1 amp, i assume you know the metric system.

Can you convert .03 amps to miliamps?

Iod is chryslers shipping fuse-ship them with no fuse to limit draw on battery. All the unnecessary stuff feeds partially though there. They now do it with software instead.
