A Vehicle Battery is required for a Vehicle's ignition, to be able to honk, for activating sirens, and to use headlights. If the Vehicle Battery manages to die while the Vehicle is in use, then the car horn, headlights, taillights, and sirens will be dysfunctional. A Vehicle cannot enter ignition if it has a dead Vehicle Battery.
The Vehicle Battery will have its power drained when the headlights or sirens are left on while the Vehicle is not being operated. When the Vehicle is being operated, the Vehicle Battery will automatically begin to recharge. Default spawning Quality values of a Vehicle Battery are 50% to 75%.
Vehicle Batteries can be manually removed from a Vehicle from the Vehicle Context Menu. It can be attached by holding the Vehicle Battery, and pressing by default, assuming there is currently no Vehicle Battery in the Vehicle. If power reaches 0%, the Vehicle Battery is deleted entirely and must be replaced.
A Vehicle Battery has an 80% chance to spawn inside a Vehicle. Additional Vehicle Batteries can be found as a part of the Gas spawn-group.
