battery drain

my battery is completely dead, and will drain quickly.

Besides the fact that its old and needs to be replaced. I think there is an electrical problem.

when following advice, using my volt meter on my fuse panel, water the meter and remove fuses until the drain goes away... ?
is that the suggested route of trouble shooting?

I couldn't seem to notice any change.

here is a picture of what i was doing. maybe i used the leads on the wrong spot?

and when i measure positive to body, i get the full battery voltage.
