Hello,

I am having the typical battery drain issue with my 2006 Golf GTI.

CAN Gateway has been changed twice, currently a 1K0 907 530AA is fitted and coded correctly (I think).
Previously I tried the 7N0 907 530J, but it had long coding issues and I couldn't get it to work, so I went back to the AA gateway.

In the car, after waiting for 5 minutes, I can still turn on the unit even with the key out and doors locked.
So the drain is still there. I have done a parasite drag test as well and it pulls about 0,5 amps with the upgraded unit fitted.
The unit fitted at the moment is the original RCD300. AutoScan was performed with it installed.

What could be wrong?
Please check the autoscan.

Sincerely,
Vuk

In theory current drain may be caused by whatever reason, not only faulty GW or RCD unit.
And here in forum / over internet we can give only theoretical suggestions... In real life You should find the fault Yourself.
Disconnect Your RCD unit and measure current drain again. Do a long measurement. Not sure about 1K, but in 8P chassis it takes up to 30 min until all systems go to sleep/standby mode.
Try to disconnect towbar module/all wiring to towbar socket. This is the first thing I always suspect in cases of parasitic drain, especially if it is equipped with 13-pin socket with permanent battery + in it.
P.S. Haven't seen in RCD 300, but seen and repaired some times in RCD 510, that had unit does not follow IGN on/off signals and must be switched on and off manually each time. Problem is in faulty CAN interface chip and/or microprocessor input receiving on/off signals from that chip (components listed are inside RCD 510 unit).
Good luck!

Normally the head unit can still be turned on at ant time even if the ignition has been off for a long time - so I would look elsewhere for the current drain.

Worth checking the voltage drop across fuses to see which circuit(s) are drawing the current?

@vukasin should probably have a look here:
