I multi-meter is for checking voltages and resistance checks, its a tool used for diagnosing electrical problems, if you have a Harbor Freight tool store close to you they have some inexpensive ones you can pick up.
Let first make sure that ALL your fuses are OK, you stated that you checked the fuses in the fuse box, that good, just lets double check those, not sure is you checked the main fuse which is located on the starter relay.
That one you will need to locate the starter relay. if you are not sure where that is, follow the (+) Red lead from the battery, that will connect to the starter relay, there is a cover on the relay, remove the cover and you should have a "green" spade type fuse, likely that on is blown, remove the fuse and replace if blown. Now while at the starter relay check the connections on bot cables, one from the battery and then other cable is the one that leads to the starter motor, make sure both those connections are clean and tight.
Then make SURE that your connections on the battery are clean and tight, if you blew the main fuse that might likely from a loose cable, or touching the positive cable to ground. When checking the cables on the solenoid make sure your battery is disconnected first, then after checking those connections at the solenoid, hook back up the battery in the order of hooking up the red cable first (with the black disconnected) then after you have the positive (+) red cable secure and tight, then hook up the black (-) negative cable, then see if it starts.
Let me know if helps and the outcome, in the mean time you have ANY questions please get back to me and I'll be glad to answer any of them.
