Thanks again
Are you talking about the feature where you are able to set a timer to turn on the fans and vent (or warm, if engine temp allows) the vehicle?
In that case, it's not the timer that might kill the battery, it's the fans spinning.
The timer is not going to kill the battery - it's nothing more than a tiny process running ont he car's computer, which never really shuts off completely.
