Leaving Alarm/Smartlock Armed for 1 Week..Flatten Battery??

Hey Guys,

not likely. think about how long they sit at the car yard before and during the sale. i doubt the current draw would be that much.

No, I had my car in the garage for over 4 weeks (was too lazy to take it out so I drove the wagon) with alarm and smartlock on and it started without any hassles.
