I had a car suddenly stop while I was driving once when I was approximately 30 miles or less from home. Luckily, it stopped right at a car parts store. The man checked the battery and it was okay, so he checked the alternator and it was bad. After he jumped it, he recommended that I go straight home because the battery would just go dead again. Going that distance, I didn't have any problems, but I had been going away from home and he said he wouldn't try to get to where I was going about 10 miles up the road and then go back home.

Can you drive a car long distance with a bad battery after jumping it?

Yes. FYI answer Once the engine is running, the alternator supplies the electricity for the car to run and it also recharges the battery. Once you have jumped the car to get it running, you can take the battery out and throw it away and the car will run until you shut it off or run out of gas.Not a good idea to do this. In doing so you risk damaging the alternator.
