My battery keeps draining in my '89 Audi 80 Quattro

I just replaced the alternator, it worked fine for almost 2 weeks now, and I can't figure out what else it could be

    sounds like you have a battery drain. A hood lamp, trunk lamp, glove box lamp or some other power drain.

    Check amperage draw at battery post. Should be just milliamps.

My daughter's car was doing the same thing. Turned out the plastic housing in the ignition switch was cracked and was staying on.

1989 Audi 90 Quattro problem


Try changing the fuel filter, first. If that does not work try replacing the pump. Also make sure you run 91 or higher octane.

98 Audi A6, Battery died overnight, when jumping smoke rises


Sounds like the alternator is badly damaged. The alternator will drain the battery if the regulutor or diode assembly goes out and/or the alternator is seized or locking up, which will cause the smoke (belt slippage) and drag on the engine (rough idle).

Audi tt quattro 180bhp2000 conv keeps looseing power


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.

I had the same problem on my 89 200 turbo Quattro and after a close check on the plastic hose that it's attached to the air pump next to the battery I found a leak; it's been working fine since. I hope this helps.
