BMV-700 Indicates current draw while charging

Battery percentage drops although the battery is full or charging. Charging connections om shunt does mot help. Resetting also not

That sounds bad.

Post a photo of the shunt and battery please.

Upon initial review it seems that the shunt or PCB board is somehow connected in reverse.

Check that the 'battery' side of the shunt is ONLY connected to the battery and that ALL other connection's for charge sources and loads are connected to other side marked 'load/charger'.
