Should my car quit running if I disconnect the battery?

Recommended Posts

Most cars will run with the battery disconnected.


I would NOT do it on my car. You can easily damage the alternator. Voltage spikes/over voltage can also cause damage to electronics.


I don't do it on customers cars either. Some of the other mechanics at my shop do, to save time.

Use a voltmeter to check your charging system properly.
