Best Answer

No, a battery cannot recharge itself. The alternator converts some of the engine's energy into electrical energy which is then stored in the battery. If a battery is not getting recharged under normal driving conditions, you either have a problem with the charging system or a failed battery. You can't know without testing. On the other hand, sometimes a dead battery can get what's called a "surface charge". A surface charge just means that when you were cranking last time, you depleated all of the readily available electrical charge. By letting the battery sit for a while, "entropy" has allowed some of the chemical reaction to spread out over all of the battery plates... but the battery cannot "create" electrical energy.
