Went to load up Treg this morning with food to take to Thanksgiving dinner. Hatch wouldn't open w/ remote, tried release on driver's door - still wouldn't open. Knew something wierd was happening, decided maybe it would work with car running. Put key in ignition, nothing. At this time I realized there was no power, no dash display, no interior lights, nothing. Tried to remove key, it won't budge. Lights were in off position, car is in Park and front wheels are straight.

Hooked up battery charger, no power, no lights, nothing. Charged battery for 7 hours, still nothing, not even an interior light.

Called Raodside Assistance, they said they can't get to it tonight, and I should call back tomorrow and they will come get it. This should be interesting as the Treg is stuck in Park in the single car stall in my garage.

Any ideas?

Got it jump started and took it to dealership. They observed it for two days and discovered a "loose ground strap on the negative terminal of the battery".

VW should have put the battery in an area accesible to the owner, perhaps under the hood like the millions of other cars on the road. I could have fixed this in 2 minutes.
