    i want to park up my vs ss for about 4 months . is there anything i need to do like dissconnect the battery or something . i had a freind who parked his up for 3 months and he needed to reprograme the car and key . dave:
     
  2. nah not really u can leave the battery connected, if u had any mods to the motor and u disconected the battery terminals for 3 months then the ECU would go bak to factory settings and would forget wat u have done to the motor ive never heard of having te re program the car and key before prolly be good to the night before ur car comes out of sleepin chrage the battery overnight and shibby rite

    also change the oil before you start to drive it again.

    Make sure your tyres are fully inflated. Leaving them in one spot when slightly deflated can cause them to flatspot.

    Pop the bonnet before locking the car and hook some good VB cord around the bonnet catch, if the battery does go flat you pull the cord to pop the bonnet, replace battery and go. It can't hurt using stands / bricks, stop the tyres becoming disstorted from sitting for a while.
