    I had mine unplugged for something like 3-4 hours the other day fitting my heated seats, didnt have to re-program anything. The car did rev up alot quicker, but it seems to have settled again now.

    Not sure if applies to the Vec-C, but on the Vec-B you first had to switch on & off the iginition, then disconnect the battery within 15 seconds - this prevented the alarm from going off.
