Open the software, click on Automotive->Charging and Starting->Charging Circuits and then select the ripple test.

You should now have a page that discusses the test, connections and sample waveform; and the scope will have been configured with the correct settings. If not then please ensure that ShowWebHelp is ticked on the Automotive drop down.
