It is shorting to ground further in. If you take the plastic slug out(with the two red wires)of contact, and it still does it, then it is not the steering wheel. It could possibly be the lock plate. If you remove the wheel, and SIR coil, loosely reinstall the wheel and see if it still does it. Then remove the lockplate, and the contact ring and see if it still does it.
