Default What is this wire?

On my 2004 Nissan Quest, this short (about 4") wire is connected to the frame and something else - see pics. The only labelling on it is AVS-3.The cable is located underneath the battery tray and appears to be some type of grounding wire.

Mine corroded and broke into 2 pieces, so I need a new one.

Other (related) symptoms: I've noticed one particular fuse in the cabin has been blowing regularly (I assume something was shorting out) and then my 2 year old battery died and I couldn't jump it. I took it back where I bought it and they replaced it, but said it looked like the battery was overheating. Could this faulty wire cause these symptoms?

Anyone know where I can get a new one?

Thanks for your help.

UPDATE --- I never could find this wire anywhere, so I went to Lowe's and bought one of these connectors (bottom image), cut the insulation back a bit, and attached it. So far, so good. Only time will tell if I have further problems.
