If battery is good,i would not,it could cause ecm to go antitheft on you when you return to it.


That is correct, if you are concern about the battery then I would get a battery tender hook it up, plug it in and let it it sit.

yep battery tender if your afraid but other wise two months won't hurt it. tho i would recommend at least starting it once a month to keep the lines from getting gummy
