1999 honda civic lx not working

Okay i was driving with the a/c on for about 20 minutes until the car started jerking and running hard, so i pulled over into the next neighborhood and it cut off. the oil light and the battery light came on. it's not turning over enough for it to start.i had people look at the the fuel pump, it was fine, they changed the spark plugs, the wire were fine and every person whom looked at it was puzzled.....would you happen to kno what's wrong with it.

If the engine is not starved for oil causing it to try to seize, have the alternator checked.
If they fail (diodes) they can drag the electrical system way down, causing ABS to lock up, ignition to fail and provide a path for continuous drain on the battery.

Have someone watch youor headlights while you try to start; they are a good indicator of battery condition.

The AC, by the way, really draws some amps to actuate the compressor clutch.
Cars without AC often have much lighter amperage alternators to save cost and weight.
