There are many ways. The plastic dividers inside a connector may have broken which allows two wires to touch each other. The wiring harness touching a sharp piece of metal could cut through the insulation. A connector full of wet salt water would allow current flow between conductors.

Until you follow the procedure in the PDF file, you are just speculating that the problem is defective wiring.
