Who wants to play a game?

The game plays as follows:

1> --Synopsis--
The player conjures up a brief summary of virtual mechanical issues

2> --Thesis--
The playee concocts a dissertation for review

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1> Specimen: 2001 Audi Turbo 4cyl

While driving one night the headlights went dim, by the time I made it home only 5 minutes down the road, the charging light was illuminated and the battery level was down to 10v, I assumed the alternator failed, replaced the alternator and still no charging. Perhaps the battery? Put in a brand spankin new battery and nope same issues. So I brought the car to the dealer, dealer said a wiring issue in the dash/engine harness, replacement cost $6,000, me being a sexi height/weight proportionte female with perky breasts and juicy booty went for it becuz I like love me car. Picked up the car 20 minutes ago, brand new battery is now dead and I'm on the side of the road typing this message on my phone. I have a friend that knows some kind of kid genius so since I have nothing to loose I called him. Next thing I know this smokin' hot sexci lad from EFIDynoTuning arrives on the scene in a bad ass tbird with a chute on the back, the turbo spool was so loud I couldn't even hear a fighter jet break the sound barrier behind me!!! Anywho without getting too off topic. He gave me a jump and when the car started he disconnected the battery terminal along with the jumper cables. To my surprise the headlights went to full brightness and the voltage needle went up to 14.5v. As soon as he reconnected the battery terminal the battery voltage dropped and the headlights went dim again. WTF ?? definitely sounds like a wiring issue but Audi just reimbursed me 6k for the new harness they put in that did nothing. HELP!!!!!!

Any takers wants to guess the culprit?

I would say shorted battery but they tried that. Unless the first battery was dead and the new one was defective. So I will say a burned out batt indicator bulb on the dash.

Someone put in a 6v battery? Haha. If that's not it I think we need another clue.
