Latest comment: there has to be a small charge in the battery to energise the magnets inside the alternator in order to start the car so a complete dead battery wont start a car even with a bump! but cars that have magnets instead of electro magnets inside their alternators will start with a complete dead battery as no juice is needed to energise the magnets most modern cars (70's onwards) have the electro magnet type alternator as they are smaller, lighter and cheaper to make
