any know issues regarding a 'draining' battery on a tt?

Recommended Posts


A new problem occured. Since a week, the battery of my turbo (2003) is empty after 2-3 days.

The battery is ok, generator works fine, no lights are on, but nonetheless my battery is empty after 2-3 days. Are there any known issues (before I ask the dealer to charge me 600$ to look).

Alarm light still blinks, but the remote does not work after 2 days. When I open the car (key) it does not start. After using a professionel booster, it starts again.

Help is appriciated.

Thanks, frank

Hi White,

Recharging was done with a booster. Just enough to start the car and then I took the car for a 45 min spin! (always nice to have an excuse to drive the car). The person from the assistance agency said my battery was ok. I will have it checked Tomorrow. They will also measure for ''powerleaks''.ed

Keep you posted.

Do you have ANYTHING plugged in? Make sure all 3 cigarette lighters are open. One iPod charger is enough to kill off a battery in the TT (I know firsthand).

There is apparently a dealer mod to add a deep-cycle battery to power the auxiliary systems. I never looked into it, but I may sometime if it gets to be a problem.
