when i use the a/c when driving it sucks all the juice out of the battery, and after replacing one battery,I used the a/c again and it started draining the new battery, so after charging the battery back to 100% and putting it back in the car i have been driving with no a/c on and the battery light has stayed off.is there any way that there's something wrong with the a/c system and not the alternator?

    Possible drive belt system problem! Any squealing noises with AC on? Need to know alt. output voltage.
