    Hello Everyone, my 2006 jetta tdi after start up all the power to the dash, lights, stereo, turn signals turn off after start up. I still drove it home which was like a 15min drive. It starts up with no problems just that the electrical turns off. I just don't know where to start looking. I took the battery to oreillys they said it was still 12.6v. Also I unplugged the positive terminal and the car would stay running. Thank you.

    Removing the battery cause it to die?

    No it doesn't die. It turned out it was the voltage regulator. Thank you.
