If you have an alternator failure on a gas rig, you aren't likely going to even notice until the chassis battery is nearly dead. At this point, the aux. start button would start/restart the engine - but the engine will stop soon after you release the button. There'll be no power available to supply the ignition or any other accessories - like the fuel pump and injectors.

BTW, if you do burn one out, replacing it with another with that potential would not be a very good plan. Get one with a continious duty cycle. They can be found at or near the same price, using the same chassis, making it a straight bolt in. I used to use the ones sold for electric snow plow pumps for instance. I'm sure there are many other applications as well.
