At the moment I have a Jazz bass (Sq Active V) but as usual I've got it and now I want something else. Whats the the closest I can get to a Precision punk/metal tone with an active Jazz? (I also have a multi effect pedal with and equaliser.)
do you mean setting wise? or pedals? pickups? what?

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.
So basically your gonna get try to get a punchy tone out of it? If I think right try this:

Treble - around 4/5 o'clock
Mids - 1/2 o'clock
Bass - 10/11 o'clock

Adjust the in between frequencies to how it gives you the better sound! And with the stuff up here, I'm not sure what it will be like but whenever I go for a punchy sound I aim for boosted highs and slightly scooped lows!

ug, an active bass will hurt the mid range even more.

Boost your mids, max the neck pup and roll the bridge pup down a bit. Add/reduce highs and lows to taste (probably cutting lows a bit to reduce thump on that neck pup).

Nothing wrong with your bass, but as versitile as it is, it isn't going to sound that close to a p-bass.
