Keeping in mind that keeping ignition on drains the battery, try to switch the daytime running lights off, switch radio off, music off...

Other reason to keep the engine off is that running engine produces heavy RF noise which might affect the coding signals if the system is not properly grounded and shielded.
Oh ok, i just wanted to make sure that my system doesnt run out of juice on me while im coding. I dont have a battery charger so i want to make sure this is as safe as possible while im doing it. Thanks for the tips on conserving power.
