tiguan battery keeps draining
Car is only 5 years old but after complaining to the Dealer, they opted to
change the battery. No difference. If the vehicle is not used at least once every
3 days, when I go to start it, the battery is dead. Something is draining the
battery. Volkswagen mechanics say the car is fine but I don't think they can find
the problem. Does anyone else have this issue?
Did they look for a parasitic battery drain or just blow you off? A better battery could reduce the issue but not cure it.
My Tiguan is doing EXACTLY the same thing. VW also say its fine and cant find anything. If you find out what is doing it PLEASE post it here. They put in a new battery but it still goes flat.
I have had this issue over and over again. I bought the pre-certified and they charge or change the battery and blow me off or blame me for leaving something on. Its so fustrating. Its been in the shop 8 times since I bought it. Im a woman so they blow me off over and offer again. Made me cry several times. The car has left me stranded and Ive lost days of work and on my own late at nght stuck somewehere
the indicator left down/up leaves a park light on - make sure you turn the indicator off as it will drain the battery. there should be a warning ding ding ding but if you miss or in a hurry it will keep the light on even if you lock the car and walk away.
