|German term or phrase: Masse /Vbatt|
|Kurzschluss nach Masse bzw. Vbatt|
|chassis ground, positive voltage|
short circuit to chassis ground or positive voltage
Althought V sub(batt) would also be understood by engineers so you might use that.
This is where some signal wire (or a wire carrying the battery voltage) somehow gets connected to the chassis ground or the reverse case. Might be due to chafing of the insulation on the wire or by some lunkhead in a garage mixing up the wires.
