What makes the engine die when I turn on the a/c on my 2008 Nissan Altima?

Asked by Jun 12, 2014 at 03:04 PM about the 2008 Nissan Altima 2.5

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The a/c had not been blowing cool air. i was going to add freon to see if it would help. Didn't get around to it yet. A coouple of days ago I turned the a/c on again and the engine died just like you turned the egnition off. Does the same thing when driving on the road, not like it is idling and stalls. Could it be the compressor has gone bad and seized up? Any help?
