Audi battery will not hold a charge.

In 2011 my 1996 Audi A4 battery began to not hold a charge. Continues still to this day. Have been through 3 batteries, in 2013 replaced alternator. No real help from dealers or other foreign car shops. Any one else had this problem? And may know what is drawing the power? Thanks

    It would be interesting to measure the current draw when everything is allegedly turned off. You should be drawing maybe...what...50 milliamps or so? But if you are drawing more like 400, then you have something going on...perhaps a module that is not shutting off. If you live in the SF Bay area, I can send you to an Audi shop that knows what they are doing.
