Angry ARRRRGGGHHHHHH Electrical!!!!!!

Howdy All,
Apparently I have lost the ground for my window controller. Can I rig a ground from the drivers side window controller or do I need to trace it all the way back to its origin? Also, I failed inspection here in Texas (Dallas) because the license plate light didn't work. Changed the bulb and still nada, found a light that came on with the parking lights,jumpered it to that wire, nope, nada. At the base of the receptacle for the bulb I get -11.87volts. Why am I getting a - (negative) indicator? I am no electrical engineer but have a decent knowledge (or so I thought) of my way around an electrical system. I am using a an IDEAL 61-360 voltmeter, when checking on voltage I have it set on 20 VDC .
Any help will be GREATLY appreciated as I have enjoyed working on my truck this summer. To date I have the headliner out and ready to put new material on it, the carpet is out and I am waiting on insulation and a my molded rubber floor liner. I bought cab lights and hope to have those on this weekend. A side note, what configuration do you use for them 1 - 3 - 1 or 5 or 6 spaced across the cab.
As always, thanks for the help!
Craig
