    ... and it needs a push.

    My car's battery is flat, and it needs a push. Here it refers to my car.



    Is this natural sentence, please?

    It's OK. Common sense tells us that it's the car and not the battery that needs pushing.

    If a car battery is dead you usually need a jump not a push.
