Gone for 2 weeks...

I'm going out of town on business for 2 weeks and remember something about the car:

1. not starting
2. or not working
3. or being disabled or something

if not used for a prolonged period of time. Can anyone here tell me what I have to look forward to when I get back and some advice to remedy whatever it is?

Thanks in advance!

Garage
Spent 3 weeks in China last March. I left the car unlocked in the garage under its blankie. No issues upon return. Took it to Willow Springs the following weekend for some serious car bonding.

The keyless remote won't work to open the door. You'll have to open it with the key. Once you start the car once, all will be back to normal.

Have a good trip.

Oh that's what it is!! I see. Thanks Grizz!

I am going to Colorado Springs to test some machines for the local municipality there. During my off time, I'll be:

1. Fly fishing (for the first time)
2. Hitting up the local casinos
3. Bar hopping and checkin out the "local night life"
4. Eating steak and lobster every meal (company tab)

Anyone else been there and have any suggestions of sights to see?

@unklekraker: You can totaly use my car if you want dude. I believe you have a benzo for colateral yes?
