My CQ just died on me a day ago. volt gauge dropped to 10 volts and battery light and brake light came on really dim, then went out. and came back on a couple times. It happened right after i washed my car, so im thinking maybe there is a short, or bad ground? Battery seems to be ok and holding a charge (12.6 volts) but alternator doesn't seem to be charging. so im hoping its that rather then a wiring nightmare. The lights are coming on very dim and kind of flickering which is making me skeptical its the alternator. But it does have 260,000kms which seems to be the usual life of a vw/audi alternator in my experience lol. Need Help!! anybody have any ideas?
