The mileage on my dashboard stays on when the car is off. Is this normal?

Asked by Chelsee Oct 11, 2014 at 02:43 PM about the 2003 Volkswagen Beetle GL 2.0L

The battery keeps dying so I'm wondering if that is the reason and if I can fix it?

it is actuly normal for it to stay on while your key is out. It should stay on for a few seconds before going out if your doors are closed. If the door is ajar the gauge will stay lit so i would start checking to make sure all your doors are closed properly and check the power wires for the door sensors
