Im going to live outside my country for 9 months
What is the best solution as i do not have power 220 V outlet in my garage for have the battery on charge

1 Leave the car with disconnected battery

2 Have someone start the car and let it idle for 5 minutes every 3 weeks


When leaving the car without battery connected. Is there something that will go wrong with the electronics as SAM or other functions
so i have to tow it to a Smart dealer to get it work again

The car is parked in 20C degrees garage dry garage.
Thank you in advance from a new member from Sweden

Car is Smart Fortwo 450 Mcc -03

Considering that this is not an electric drive, I'd just disconnect the negative terminal of the battery and the car will be fine. I assume the SAM has flash memory that will be fine without power (Right?). But if you have a neighbor to start and run the the car for 5 minutes every month, that certainly better.
