I added a wiring setup just like that for my heated gloves, I'd hang the female end out the left side of the seat towards the back, then sit on the bike and reach back and plug in my tail connector hanging down the back of my jacket. Battery tenders also do this same setup. I'm suspecting that the seat being compressed pushed the hot wire against something actually grounded, as if you look the actual battery connections are quite deep below all the other harness stuff, plus that batch of wiring should be in a small glove like cover with velcro on it.
