Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
Well VW has had a TSB on this subject for a while but it typically only applies to high temperature states
so I would start with normal diagnoses, follow this...
disconnect the negative battery cable, make sure you have the radio code beforehand
using a test light install in series with the negative battery cable and the negative battery terminal
leave the hood open and any doors open to gain access to the fuse boxes
wait for all systems to shut down and the interior lights go out... this may take over an hour
after which watch your test light...it will be one, indicating a battery drain
then start pulling fuses until the test light goes out
when the light goes out you have found the source of your drain
trace the circuits involved with the fuse and you'll fin your problem without replacing unneeded parts
most of the time I find that the BCM is suspect
