    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
