Faulty batteries are rare. Typically when battery won't stay charged an alternator is needed, but you can check for a current drain first. To do this you need an ammeter. Disconnect positive line of battery and connect the circuit "through" the ammeter instead. (DO NOT START THE CAR LIKE THIS!!!). Monitor current draw - as you do so, pull each fuse from fuse panel (left side of dash). Don't pull them all, but rather remove one at a time. When the ammeter shows minimal current drain you'll know which circuit is causing the draw. You can then disconnect individual loads on that curcuit until you find the culprit. Hopefully it's something easy like a light switch - but it could be more involved.

HI Tracey, first thing to do is check the connector below the seat... make sure car is off and negative battery terminal is disconnected, the peak under the seat and check for any loose connections. If all is ok, reconnect battery and check fuses. Sounds too new for this to be a motor issue. Hope it helps.
Check bearing and joint/knuckle on every wheel and even on the drive shafts, if there is lack/knocking, that could cause abs and esp light,because sensor doesnt give right information and ecu only records sensor fault butdoesnt say why the infromation is wrong. They changed the sensor but didnt solve the cause!!!
Hi, Sounds like your abs braking system is at fault.
The light would normally flicker when traction (tyres loosing grip with the road) is lost, Then as regained the light should go back out, however you have a sensor on each wheel either one of those may have packed in or your main ABS control unit under the bonnet may be at fault or on the way out. Also it may be your traction control switch that could be at fault.
Hope this helps.
On a 2001 Audi TT Quattro the fuel filter is located forward of the fuel tank, in the right rear wheel well area. The fuel line clamps are a bit tricky. The change will improve performance. The owners manual does not even list changing the filter. But do it! use a Fram, and it fit perfectly. Good luck.
Hi, it is the drive band for the deflector. There is a single motor behind the driver, this drive the two screws via a band. It i shard to see but when the roof is in the down position remove the trim and you can see both screws which raise the glass. The glass is seated within single metal bracket, if you feel follow the top of the screws you will find the band.
I had the same problem the glass would only raise on the drivers side then stop with acracking sound, which was the trim luckily, on inspection I found the drive band had worn away, so the motor ws only driving one side.
