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.
Serge,

Yes that's what I was wondering. I have it set for about 5 minute before I get in my car in the morning. I have never used the feature but am curious to try it out tomorrow morning.
