Why does turning on the A/C kill the engine?

Not sure how you put a battery in your AC, first time I've ever heard of a car AC having a battery.
Your AC may need "recharging", but that has nothing to do with a battery. A/C systems are filled with a liquid/gas "freon". When it leaks out, the A/C stops working, and can put a heavier load on the engine. Perhaps it was over filled? That could make the compressor very hard for the engine to turn.

I have a 2002 buick rendezvous and ever since yesterday the windows fog up execpt for the front windshield. Ive tried all different kinds of methods and none work. Its scary driving when I can't see. Any...

Clean the windows on the inside with your favorite glass cleaner and follow that up with Mothers cleaner wax. Dab on a dime sized drop to a cotton washcloth and rub it on until it hazes, let it dry for a few minutes then use a clean cloth wipe it off.

Stalling when ac turned on

You probably unhooked the battery recently if this just started. Classic dirty throttle body syndrome. Unhook the battery, yank the throttle body off (only 4 bolts) and clean with a product like a sensor safe Seafoam and a rag, do not use wire brush or something abrasive, will damage the aluminum. Can re-use the hard plastic O-ring many times over. Hook the battery back up and drive around for 15 minutes or so. This is THE most popular problem with Envoys and Trailblazers. After the original battery was unhooked, the computer thought the throttle body was clean, which it is not, so you will have idle problems when the A/C or Defrost is on. Before you unhook the battery for cleaning, make sure you turn OFF all HVAC including AC or Defrost, or you the vent actuators can go bad on you.

Stuff coming out of AC vents

Thats normal for an older car..
It is debris & foam insalation that is around the ducking..
Worse thing that might happen from that is you loose a little insalation,, and make a clean car a little messy..

Air condition problem

It might be because recent owners smoked cigarettes in the vehicle. Also, the AC vents may have a little mold which can cause a bad smell until the air flows through.
