As I’m owner of 2003 Audi TT V6 DSG…….I believe that I have a short somewhere. The battery runs down fast if I don't disconnect it. When I run the engine the voltage gauage becomes less negative (slightly more so when the engine is racing.)

Anyway I think :rolleyes: I have a short somewhere: The rear dome light has always been a problem in the past in that it would always blow out any new bulb. I have recently had most of my dash indicators stop working (All that are working are the Voltage gauage and the speedometer/odometer). These are clues for a possible short that I know of. I've done a curiory look at the wiring and can't see anything.
I looked for the fuse box so I could isolate things but couldn't find it.

Can somebody tell me where the fuse box is :blink: ? Or what better yet what the likely problem is?

Hi guys, I recall from the manual that it is under a small panel on the driver side (LHS) where the door meets the dash. You need to open the door to see it, and use a screwdriver to pry it open - I just took this pic now to have look, it is pretty easy to do.
I am assuming that it is the same place on your cars as it is on mine (TT 1.8 2WD).
Hope this helps, cheers.
