What happens if....?

What happens if your car is battery is not grounded, does that make a car a potential fire hazard, a friend of mine was working on his car and didnt re-ground it after he had installed his stuff and then one day i noticed his ground battery from his car loose and told him to bolt it so it connects to the car body. Is it true that not grounding your car can make it cook if it gets hit buy lightning, or something.

No ground = no closed circuit = nothing.
Loose ground = may cause sparking at end point = may be a fire hazard = if gases from battery present, may cause explosion.

Not having a closed circuit means NOTHING WORKS at all. It affects everything in that it all stops working. If only your battery is disconnected then your car may still run (but it wont start, it has to already be running or push start it). Disconnecting a cable from your battery is the same as taking the battery out and throwing it away (well, except if you take it out you reduce the dangers of having loose wires next to a battery).
