Unless the battery light was on while the engine was running I don't think that was your problem. The batt light always comes on when the key is on and vehicle is not running. That said I am not sure without more info why the vehicle shutdown and how that is related to the ac unit

Auto Zone does not test the alternator under full load so the test result could be borderline.
start the car and turn everything on. If the voltage drops lower than 14.2
replace the alternator.
also the battery could be being drained overnight. to check use a test light by removing a battery terminal and connecting light between battery and cable with car off.
if it lights start be removing fuses.
when the light goes off the problem is with this circuit.
lastly if the light stays on take the wires off the alternator.
if the light goes out replace alternator.

double check the battery terminal or wire connector if loose,go to nearest autozone to check the load test on the alternator,your alternator might loosing it already.

Car started fine..stopped, no restart, no click, dead lights on.


try getting a boost for your car.... the battery may be failing. it doesn't take alot of power to turn on the lights... but a huge drain on the battery to start it. if it will not start with a boost i could very well be that the starter has failed. as you attempt to start it... have someone tap the starter with a hammer. if it starts... replace the starter.... if it starts normally with a boost you likely need a new battery
