you haven't lived till you killed the battery in a 1962 Triumph TR4. Then pull the hand crank out of the trunk. Then have your classmates stare at you as you insert the crank into the grill, and crank the engine over. Fun Times

I bump started my old Miata just to see how difficult it was a couple times, in case I ever had to do it. If you killed the battery by leaving the lights on, I'm actually surprised that there was enough juice to turn on the ECU and other electronics necessary for the car to fire/run, even outside of the starter.

I've push started my Miata when it didn't have enough juice to turn the car over. An ECU and fuel pump doesn't require the same kind of power a starter does.

I used to have a chevette that I needed to do this to fairly regularly on my own. I'd do it in reverse, get the car moving a bit jump in and pop the clutch. In reverse the car barely has to be moving.

Now I'm all growed up and own booster cables and another car.

"Jack Bauer would have gotten the ring to Mordor in 24 hours."

LOL

below a certain voltage, the starter doesn't have enough juice to push past the compression of the pistons, but you'll have enough to start up the ECU and fuel pump. Even without, I think the alternator will generate enough power to drive the car. I may go unplug my battery while the cars running to see if this is true.

Better yet, Joe Perez, go grab a six pack and make a new movie.

FYI, push starting a miata is difficult if you use 2nd. 3rd is a little better for those of us with no hills. It will start up at like 100rpms and rescue itself when you put the clutch back in.

p.s. I've done this at least 6 times with my car when diagnosing fuel pump relay problems.
