Took a look at this connection in my own car today, as I have started suspecting some charging problems in addition to unexplained current draw.. Have a reported batt voltage during driving of 13,2-13,7V according to VCDS, but the measured current keeps jumping up and down between +10 and -5A. That the current into the battery would be negative during driving sounds strange to me..

Anyway, I opened the box and this looks like it has been hot, with the too small heat shrink and the «mark» on the lid at the same point. Think I will try the soldering method myself and see if anything improves.
