So i'm having this weird issue continue to expand that began with intermittent trouble starting, the power would work fine until I tried to crank then it would bog down while cranking and die. So I bought a new battery for the trunk which did nothing to fix it, underseat battery is a year old and stamped VAG. I read somewhere something about turning the key left then right and that seems to have worked until my right-side headlight bulb (bi-xenon) died and I got a couple pops from the front speakers, now the front door speakers don't work and it almost always dies when trying to crank until I turn the key left then right and it cranks with no problem like it should with a new battery. I disconnected both batteries for about ten minutes to try and reset everything but that did nothing. All my fuses are good and connections to related modules appear okay. I have no VCDS cable but should probably order one soon.
