Voltage regulator plug drawing current

here's the deal. I was making a hold down for my battery and the box (trunk mounted). When i put the battery back in I hooked up the cables by which side of the box they were on like an idiot! I hooked it up backwards, blew fusible link. I replaced the fusible link and my battery keeps draining. I had about 2 amps at the negative with everything off. I unhooked the plug to the voltage regualtor and it went down to the normal .02. I hooked it up to a different alternator that I know the regulator is good in, and it did the same thing, 1.5-2 amps. Here's the thing, if i jiggle the plug it will go back to .02 amps but the alternator won't charge, basically like the plug isn't even hooked up. Is the plug bad or what?
