When checking insulation my manual says I should have infinite ohms at each terminal. When testing the terminals the needle does not move from the left side of the ohmmeter. Is that what it should do to indicate infinite ohms? Sorry for being so stupid. Just never been electrically inclined.

Assuming you have a 0 to infinite scale from left to right, sounds like you have a dead short. in other words there is no resistance where there should be an open (infinite resistance) indicating a problem between the two terminals you are checking. Make sure the battery is good in your meter. Touch the to leads together, and you should get about 0-.1 ohm (this makes sure your meter is ok). Some you can dial in the zero due to calibration differences. Hope this helps.
