2000 audi A8L, new battery keeps loosing it's charge. Parasitic power drain. Battery is dead and unable to start car every morning without a jumpstart. AAA has replaced my batteries twice in the last 2 weeks with batteries

Asked by Jun 26, 2017 at 12:24 AM about the 2000 Audi A8 L

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Could they have put the batteries in backwards
where the positive battery cable is hooked up to
the negative terminal and the negative cable is
hooked up to the positive terminal period could
this be the reason for my parasitic power drain? I
also noticed that my right tail light has gone out
twice in the last 2 or 3 months. One bulb was
replaced 3 months ago and I noticed that it is out
again tonight. My right front headlamp also has it
stay light out. Any ideas what my problems might
be? Could my battery cables being hooked up to
the wrong terminals be responsible for this
situation?
