The 4E A8 is one of the most power-hungry cars every made. If you're going to be working on this car extensively and don't wish to run the engine while scanning, you're going to need a good battery charger, 20-30A at the absolute minimum.

I did this and the battery level meter shows up but not the suspension, oil or anything else that might have shown up when doing this
Looks like most of your problems are voltages as Eric said in a previous post, I would connect a battery charger to this car and let it charge right up and then clear out the DTC's. Keep in mind for some reason sometimes when you go clear all DTC's it doesn't. I always go into the Modules in question by double clicking on it and clear it out individually. Also when you run a full AutoScan a Battery charger should always be connected to get a proper scan. After you do these steps please post up another full AutoScan...

so the battery in the vehicle is not an Audi battery, and with the key turned on but not over before the complete scan is ran I get a energy management message on the dash display, or am I supposed to run it with the car started instead? and I took the battery to get tested and I keep getting told its a good battery and im not sure it was coded to the vehicle, its a Super Start Extreme battery and I was told its less than a year old after tracking down the last owner and asking him
Do yourself a favor get an OEM Varta Battery from Audi!! then code it to the car, For now you can code this aftermarket one by just changing one number of the serial number in VCDS.

so this is my scan after clearing all DTC's and with the battery charger hooked up. also for the bulbs that I need to replace can I get them from the auto parts store or do I have to get them from Audi also? or the internet?

Now that looks a lot better!!! starting to get somewhere...The bulbs you have in question are they actually burned out? This could just be the wiring and not the bulb. Some of these might not be a problem getting at a regular part store, others like the Fog lights will more then likely be dealer or online only. This car is just way to temperamental for anything aftermarket, This includes the Battery.
I will start from the top of your scan, 01:Engine - 18062 ABS Controller (This could very well be because of your rear brakes DTC being worn) I would start by inspecting both rear brakes to see how much is left on both side os the rotors then report back. They just might need to be replaced and then coded, or they where replaced and somebody didn't code the module correctly. Also please check that Alarm Horn for bad wiring or bad Alarm, Most likely it's going to be the Alarm itself.
65:Tire pressure (Looks like it's switched off so why not pull the fuse and code the TPS out of the install list 19.. Telematics I would pull the front driver seat out and remove it from the black box and then pull the fuse and code that out as well.. I purchase all my parts from a wonderful source great OEM parts at a fantastic price www.fcpeuro.com... I would stop going zig zag on things and work on one DTC at a time and report your findings.

34:Level Control DTC
Possible causes:
Wiring and / or connections faulty
(G290) defect

Possible solutions:
Check / repair wiring and connections
Check (measuring blocks) / replace (G290)
This also could be that the compressor is getting hot by working to hard, There are air Compressor rebuild kits out there for real cheap and easy for a DIY. Best way to tell is do you here the compressor loader then normal? You should barely hear it, mine was running HOT and I rebuilt it with a new piston ring and it is now extra quite and works amazing.

I would absolutely check the Rear Brakes for sure, I know you don't want them to get to a point it causes more damage if they are truly bad. The website I listed above will give you the price but better yet a full diagram of the vehicle to give you part #'s This is what I use for sure..

im still having the issue of something draining the battery after about 6-8 hours of the car sitting it will light up and the key will turn but it will not start instead it makes a ticking sound like the battery is completely dead but it's not then after I put the charger on it for about a minute it starts right up?? what could be drawing this power from the battery? based off of my latest scan?

Have you checked the Alarm Horn wiring like I stated in a previous post? Did you order the Alarm horn? Did you order the MOST loop?
When you shut all doors and lock the car do you hear the alarm beep? After you lock the car after about 15 mins look at the Hazzars button and or the shift lights, are they still lite up? The loop will bypass the CD player that's showing a DTC, if the Can Bus cannot communicate with all modules then it will not go to sleep, it will countinue to try over and over this is another battery drain issue. Again you need the alarm horn/alarm siren and at lease one loop to start fixing things.

I did order the MOST loop, and no alarm beeps when locking the car and yes the shift lights stay on but not sure how long exactly will time it in the am and look at the horn/alarm also and will post after doing so

Awesome! The loop is a life saver. The alarm doesn't beep because there is a problem with the alarm wiring or the alarm it self. My money is you need a new alarm. The lights will stay on until it's forced to turn off when the battery drains lol. When the loop get in let me know and I'll walk you through it. Have you found the location of the alarm?

No I actually just texted you asking for the location of the alarm, and how do I code out a function as in the tire sensor you said I should since its turned off?

Here is a question I have. How do you go about checking battery drain in an A8 with a meter? I ask because it doesn't work like normal cars. I took the negative battery terminal off and put the red from meter to negative cable and black from meter to negative post of the battery and automatic it turns the sound system and alarm goes off? Thanks
