Jul 02, 2009 (7:54 am)
I HAve always kept in the garage my 2000 Audi tt with 72 900 miles on it, always babied, just for weekends, one day i was in the car and it suddenly stopped, they told me that the alternator was bad, i change the alternator and the battery, and the car is blinking the ABS, check engine, no odometer, no A/C and the engine was running fine, but after a while the engine died, and the battery was dead too, i check with the Audi Dealer at the MOMENTUM AUDI in HOUSTON TEXAS, they are the worst service in the dealer world, they treat you bad, with no mercy, just to steal your money!!, can someone help me with this problem

Ah, I had a drain in the stereo system of my 2000 TT. Audi was not helpful at all in fixing it - they replace the instrument panel but the problem persisted.
I am thinking it was a short in wiring. Tested head unit, tested amplifier, tested CD unit, tested speakers - no dice. Tested amperage at the fuse box - it spiked intermittently high enough to cause a drain of the battery every 10 days or so. Since I knew it was in the stereo line, but just could not find it, I unplugged the fuse to the stereo when I was not using the car. Drove it that way for 2 years, no problem.

I have electrical cluster problem on 2000TT. I had alternator and battery fixed 10 mos ago by foreign motor garage but they now say I have to do to dealer.
I can travel if someone has had this fixed in the general area.

I bought my almost new TT a month ago as the 2nd owner with just 27Kkm.
Few days later started to notice that the suspension malfunction light is on and at that point the drive mode select button (sports or comfort mode) stops responding. Local dealer spent almost 4 days trying to fix the problem but with no proper results yet and i am starting to worry now. Any idea guys....?

The exact same thing has happened to my 2001 Audi TT. I have more mileage but it seems to be exactly the same issue...I was driving down the highway and the car started starving for fuel and shut off. It will turn on for about 5-10 seconds and then shut itself off again. I have checked ALL RELAYS, the fuel pump, all wiring that I could think of. I cannot find the problem. Did you ever find out what was wrong with yours?
