Best Answer

The battery is used when the car is running to stabilize the voltage and store energy from the alternator. It is not recommended to run the car with no battery, as this can damage the alternator and the car's electrical system.

A dead battery (if you have one) can usually suffice to run the car for a short time, however it may also damage the alternator.
