Is my engine shot

I have a 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe. For the last year or so there has been a problem with the radio cutting out and the lights (both dash and headlight, clock, etc.) dimming when the radio cuts out. This ONLY happens when the air conditioning is running. And it doesn’t happen all the time. Sometimes it doesn’t happen at all, and the next time I drive with the air on it does. I had the alternator replaced last Friday, and am still having the same problem, only now sometimes the ABS and TSB indicator lights illuminate at the same time as the radio cutting out and the lights dimming. Again, this ONLY happens when the air is running.

When the air isn’t running, I have noticed that when I turn on a blinker, or have the lights on, the clock sometimes seems to dim. When the blinker is on, it dims in time with the blinker on and off.

My mechanic says its not overheating but is probably a sensor or the gauge itself. He doesn't seem to want to find out which. How do I find out why it isn't working.

do you have any idea? could it be in brakes, they were replaced 2 months ago.

The evaporator line is hot when it should be cold. Somewhat cool air is felt when the climate control lever is on the coldest setting and the fan is on high.
