Question about Volkswagen Passat
Something in your electrical system is drawing the battery down. I have seen brake lights that stick on, under the hood lights, trunk lights and so forth stay on when the owner doesn't realize it and this draws the battery down. Check all your lights and switches for something that may be on and you didn't know it. Did anyone load test the battery to make sure it is good? Ive seen batteries from the factory that weren't any good. Since the battery is new, I assume you had this before you changed it but I needed to ask that anyway just to make sure. Listen for any fan that might stay on as well. I don't know of any real recall issues or such.. In the past there was an issue with brake lights shorting out and staying on, check the brake light builbs for dark burned spots, the other issue may be with the security device if your car is equiped with one. Well that should cover it for now, gte back with me if you don't find the draw and we can look for other issues, but I bet you find it, Good luck
