Parasitic Drain Electrical Question

Recommended Posts

So I have a parasitic drain on my battery.  I thought I traced it to the Regulator Rectifier but I switched that out and still get the same draw.  When I remove the Reg/REc the draw goes away.  So for you electrical experts:

By adding the reg/rec I am closing a circuit, correct?

I tested the connector that leads to the reg/rec.  With the negative off the battery, I put one lead from the multi meter on the battery negative and one to the brown wire on the connector.  This gave me the same amp reading as when the reg/rec is connected.  My thought is I have a short in the wire harness or a component down the line.    Would a short pull amps?
