It's hard to say for sure, but I would recommend taking it to a mechanic or an auto parts store and have the battery and alternator tested. If they both seem fine, then it's probably an issue with the battery ground strap. Good luck!

The first thing I would check is to see if the air conditioning compressor clutch is engaging when the system is on. The fan probably won't come on if the AC compressor isn't engaging. Does the fan engage when the car sits at an idle in the driveway? After it comes fully up to temperature, the fan should start. The threshold coolant temperature is ...
