There is an idle speed control motor on the side of the car's throttle body that is supposed to keep the idle stable even when additional loads like the AC are on. It's possible the motor may be damaged due to a voltage spike when you had it jumped. It's also possible the AC system may be pulling the engine speed down due to an internal problem with a faulty AC compressor.
Did the shop that checked the charging system check to make sure alternator was charging properly with the additional loads of the AC, headlights and blower motor on? It's very possible the system is overloading a weak alternator.

look for loosen battery wires, corrosion in them. check ground wire all the way to the engine block make sure its connected right and check ground to the body of your vehicle.

Will I be able to drive my car down the road if my alternator is bad? My battery went dead, jumped it and drove it for 30 min. Didn't stall out. Is my battery bad or alternator? I read your car will...


Yes, your car's engine will cut out if there is no electricity being (ultimately) supplied to the spark plugs..
You could have a bad ground, loose connection, or bad alternator.
Carefully inspect all connections - even the ones on the starter, ground at the frame, battery terminals, and connection on the alternator and the other end of the wires coming from the alternator.
Typically most parts stores will test your alternator for free, while it is still on the car. Call ahead to be sure.
Best regards

6 YEARS IS A LONG TIME FOR A BATTERY TO LAST. YOU ARE LUCKY. I WOULD GET A NEW INTERSTATE BATTERY & CHECK THE CHARGING SYSTEM, TO MAKE SURE IT IS OK. MOTOR RUNNING, THE VOLTAGE AT THE BATTERY SHOULD BE BETWEEN 13.90 & 14.80.

WELL SOUND LIKE BATTERY PROBLEMS.HAVE CAR JUMPED START AGAIN. DONT TURN ON AC OR ANY ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS LET ALTERNATOR CHARGE UP BATTERY.WITH CAR RUNNING BATTERY VOLTAGE SHOULD BE 13.5 - 14.5 VOLTS. IF YES YOUR BATTERY IS DEFECTIVE.MOST OF THE TIME WHEN VECHICLE NEED JUMP START THE BATTERY HAS WEAK CELLS OR MAKE SURE BATTERY CABLES CLEAN AND TIGHT.IF BATTERY VOLTAGE IS NOT 13.5 - 14.5 VOLTS WITH ENGINE RUNNING.ALTERNATOR NOT CHARGING.CHECK ALTERNATOR FUSE + WIRES MAKE SURE THEY ARE TIGHT NOT DAMAGE.CHECK ALTERNATOR DRIVE BELT MAKE SURE ITS NOT LOOSE.DUE TO LOCK OUT FEATURES TURN OFF RADIO BEFORE REMOVING NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE.

The most likely problem is your alternator, the alternator charges your battery while the engine is running, if the alternator is bad you have a dead battery, but you can check with a volt meter to ensure that is your problem. Start your car (use a battery charger or jump to start it if you need to) and put your meter on the battery post's. If your reading 13volts or so your alternator is working and maintaing voltage, however if your reading starts dropping to 10 or less(may take a few moments to drop) then it's probably your alternator. You can also check your battery's voltage before starting your vechile, if the voltage increases after you start the vechile then it seem to be charging. Alternators can be repalced somewhat easily, it's only two boltsm however you do have to remove the fan belt, and re-route after installing the new alternator. If you have some expirence working on cars you can do this yourself in your driveway.
Good luck

Here's a start for you, hope this helps
