Thanks for these thoughts.
What did you mean by "I'd recommend also pulling something for the ignition too" ?
I recall doing the fuse thing a long time ago...not sure why I stopped doing this. I didn't do it before storage, just turned it off.
I just really care about the car, so I want to be as careful as I can be (beautiful Viggen).
A couple questions:
- If the fuse is pulled out, is it okay for the DIC to stay connected and spark, or is it better to disconnect the DIC connector?
- I was in a rush storing it and didn't get a chance to remove the battery from the car, so I just disconnected the negative end. I usually charge the battery before starting the car. Do you think the battery, having been disconnected and sitting in a relatively cold garage has retained enough charge for the above-mentioned procedure? I think it's in pretty decent shape (actually, it's about 10 years old...but not many miles).
- How many of these "bursts" would you do? 2-3? And then quickly put the fuse back in and start it up?
Thanks again for the helpful suggestions
