Re: Long Term Parking and Brakes Scenic

I think so.
Card in,
In any gear, preferably a low one.
Footbrake on.
Press Start (steering lock comes off, but engine doesn't start & In gear nag on dash)
Release handbrake manually. YOU WILL GET BEEPS.
This is where I have never tried
Press start button again (car still in gear) should turn "Ignition" off.
Get out, taking keycard, shut door & lock.
Brick the wheels & label on drivers window perhaps?
If it's going to be that long, then either use a battery tender or remove battery to garage & charge once a month.
