It shouldn't as long as alternator is operating properly and the belts are tight. But if you just running the fan for the ac with the car turned off then yes it will drain the battery dead.

Yes if the alt is not charging schroud 12.5 at idal and 13.5 - at 1000 remand hold.ist go get code saver to plug in lighter otherwise wipe out radio codes and other code so you don't have to reset everything alarm Codes trust emits a lot easier it got hold 13.5 when revved up with ac on radio on lights on everything on running. Ist clean battery ends or replace if needed because I've seen many times people put new alt and still have problems

01bigjon... English dude!!! And no, the AC does not draw any significant power from the elctrical system. The blower motor does though. Especially on high.
