    Hello and welcome OP to the VCDS forum

    Better check terminal relays and ignition switch............

    Please see JPPSG and check all fuses + get RTFB & WD to verify locations or components to test.

    On the Q7, the new battery has to be coded to the BEM module (address 61).

    Do you have clamp tester or multimeter to test for current draw at battery? Close and lock all doors (alarm) and wait at least 2min for all systems to go into `sleep` mode and check draw.

    In addition to this, also close the hood latch because it's usually monitored by the factory alarm.

    And you might want to post an autoscan with the ignition turned on - a lot is missing in the scan without it.

    Please can you charge the battery, clear all fault codes and run a new scan. Thanks

    Yes it is a new battery, but not OEM.
    I will read JPPSG and follow all the steps.

    I was suspecting either a relay or the ignition switch as it only happens intermittently.
    After getting my car cleaned prior to all the problems, I seen water all around the push start button surface thinking it may be shorting causing the problem.
    There was a code saying ignition switch shorted or open.
    I removed it but didn't see any moisture on the component.

    Just learning to navigate the forum, finding some good info here!

    I spoke with the dealer and they mentioned coding.
    I have an A6, I may need to go with an OEM battery to have the info the coding requires.

    I have the battery fully charged, will clear the fault codes and run a new scan either tonight or tomorrow and repost.

    I did use a clamp on and it took a couple minutes as the loads dropped off, took a couple minutes for the trunk light to go out and was then down to 0.02 amps once it went to sleep.
