Use a battery tender.

What's a battery tender?

82,765

A small charger of 1 or 1.5 amps that keeps the battery topped off. Check Amazon.

Do I need to keep it plugged in? And have my engine lid open??

Yes you plug them in. I am sure you can close the hood if you are careful.

Do not disconnect the battery, unless you want to spend at least a hundred bucks to bring the computers back online, there are a lot of type of battery float chargers, some of them hook directly to the battery, others use an live all the time power port inside the vehicle, as they only maintain the charge in the battery they don't pull a lot of power so you can close them inside the vehicle and just run the cord outside either through a slightly open window or even through the lower inner door seal so you close the door and leave the Windows rolled up, but that is really not a good idea the interior needs to breathe when it get hot.

By the way. F_O_R, can I leave it until the battery dies and plug it in later with a battery tenderizer? Would the battery's condition be ok?

A battery tender is not powerful enough to charge a dead battery, they are for maintenance only.

Letting your battery die on such a car is a bad idea - see tennisshoes comments.

Would it help if I were to unplug the fuse that is related to the ant- theft system and remote control key connection?

No. Just use the tender and you won't need to worry.

Ok. Thank you so much!

I agree with the above, just buy a battery tender and hook it up to the battery and plug it in. No need to do anything else to the vehicle except maybe fill the fuel tank, add some fuel stabilizer and drive it a few miles before parking it.
