If you put a full charge in you now-dead battery, you might make it, but it would be iffy at best. The problem is not just the spark (which does come from the battery) but also the electric fuel pump and possibly the computers. If you just jump start it and take off, you'll probably only get far enough to make for a long walk back home. Good luck, John On Tue, 02 Apr 2002 16:26:51 GMT, "David Green" <mercmoonnopsamhlink.net> wrote: >I seem to have a dead alternator and a dead battery >now because of it.
