What's wrong with my car?


Sounds a lot like an alternator issue; flickering can occur if a diode fails in the regulator, allowing the DC voltage to fluctuate. Also, when that happened the alternator probably stopped charging the battery and the battery discharged down to the point where when you tried to turn on the A/C, there wasn't enough current left to activate the A/C clutch and the vehicle died. Have the charging system checked out. The battery, if drained and if older, may also need to be replaced. If lucky it might only need recharging.

Sometimes the car won't start and the dash lights and the radio lights flicker


Best place to start is the positive lead on the battery . Remove the lead and clean battery pole and terminal using sand paper until you have shiny syrfaces. Replace the lead and tighten the terminal . Check the battery for charge condition as what you describe indicates a flat battery

Sounds more like you have a grounding problem. Check all the ground wires from body to the chassis and the large one that goes from the battery to the engine. Look for faulty cables or bad or rusty connections. You can even add a couple of new ground wires to make sure that is not the problem.

Sounds like a charging system issue. Just because the alternator itself tested fine doesn't mean it's getting power to the car and battery. Charge the battery and start the car (with everything connected normally, including alternator). While car is idling, disconnect the battery (negative post wI'll do). If car dies, there's a problem with the alternator wiring/harness. Once the vehicle is running, the alternator should provide plenty of power. Check voltage at battery (from alternator) and should be around 14V. Check alternator fuse.
Could be the voltage regulator in the alternator going out, which would need a new alternator.
