Maybe not. I have heard of batteries being drawn down by the motors in AC/Heater servos failing to go into the park position. Turn the car off and put your ear next to the big, black, plastic cannister with all the vacuum and electrical lines going into it on the passenger-side of the engine compartment just in front of the firewall.
