Customer Question

Second opinion] - HI, I have a 2002 vw jetta tdi that has a short draining the battery. I have narrowed it down to the second wire from the left as the short to ground.. Do not know how to find the wire destination
JA: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?
Customer: Battery was replaced yesterday
JA: Are you fixing your Jetta yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes, I have discovered a direct short to ground on the positive wire of the battery. IN the distribution box I have narrowed it down to a single wire of the four coming from this box
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no
