View Full Version : Fuse 15 Instrument Cluster is draining the battery, advice?

01-30-2015, 05:18 AM
I have a '00 Audi A4 Avant 2.8L and I have noticed that both the stock alarm is killing the battery and now fuse 15 and whatever it is connected to is pulling amps when the car is shut off. Has anyone dealt with this? If it is the instrument cluster, has anyone found out what exactly is causing the drain in it? Is it repairable?

I tried disconnecting the instrument cluster to see whether the current flow is still there and it was. So does anyone have any idea what else is powered by that fuse? The wire diagrams in the service manual do not help at all. They don't name a single fuse in a circuit or I just don't know how to read it.
