Question about 2000 Audi A4
1999 A4; air pump runs continuously when the key is off draining the battery. Power and ground are constant to the plug at pump. Relay controlled or sensor controlled? Where would either be located? What does the air pump do?
The air pump is not in the trunk, and it is not for the air ride. It is used to reduce tailpipe emissions. it is actived by a vacuum valve/solenoid.It could be a bad vacuum valve or check valve. Save yourself a few bucks and go to an auto parts store and get a haynes repair manual to locate these parts, and replace them yourself.

The air pump is for the air ride suspension. there should be a switch in the trunk to turn it off.
