Hello friends,

I need a piece of advice: I live in Saudi Arabia where during summer, temperature between 45-50 degrees are normal. I will leave the country for almost two months and the car will be staying under the sun (protected only by a car cover). Question is: should I remove the battery before I leave and store it inside the house? Will it still be usable once I return? Since the CPU will be without power, what will happen when I connect the battery back? (the car is bought about 6 months back)

Any other tips that I should be aware of? I searched online about removing and adding back the battery but I could not find any advice about this particular topic).

Thank you,
Andrei

It's not a hop skip and a jump to disconnect the battery... if you're dead set on it put a battery tender on the Jumpstart points of the car or the battery terminals themselves. It's tough to get to it bc it's under the passenger seat

All the important settings are stored in non volatile memory. So you don't loose anything when the battery is disconnected.
