alternator issues?

My 2008 Patriot shuts off when the heat or air conditioner is turned on. I was told it needs an new alternator. Doesn't shut off when wipers, lights etc are used. Does this make sense or should I be looking at other issues?

Air Conditioner causing engine to die.

Did you ever get this issue resolved? I have the same issue with a 2015 Patriot and haven't been able to trace it down to the offending component yet.

In case anyone runs across this post, My mechanic found a loose ground wire in a bundle underneath the intake assembly. That was the cause of the A/C causing the engine to die.
