In some cases yes. It's all dependent on how good your battery is and how long you cranked it to get fuel up. TIP: don't run out of fuel and you won't have to worry about it.

2000 Cadillac ran out of gas I put gas in it and battery died I got a jump and it still won't start


if you ran out of gas this will not cause a battery to go dead. you may have a charging problem causing the car to run only off of the battery voltage until the battery was too low to run the ignition system and died.

Your battery might be discharged, perhaps your alternator is damaged. If your battery contacts are loose, try cleaning and tightening them.

2005 Chrysler 300 C. Battery went completley dead. Jump it . It holds a charge. Now check engine light on. Runs rough multiple missfires. Replaced battery. Ran good for 10 miles. Check engine on again....


Fill up your gas tank and ad a bottle of Lucas gas treatment/lube to the tank, be sure it's the treatment in a little clear bottle and not injector cleaner. After you've added the gas and treatment drive the car, with the head, driving lights, radio, heater, etc. all turned off. It may take ten miles or more but the check engine should go off and car will run normal. NOTE: Never jump start your car or use it to jump someone else's without referring to your owners Manuel.

Turn the key on and listen for the fuel pump to prime, you ran out of gas, if it was weak to begin with that may have finished it.
