Does running the AC in a car affect the battery when not moving?

For most cars the air conditioning is powered by a belt from the engine and even if the car is only idling it will be running without any meaningful effect on the car's battery. For some hybrid drive cars the air conditioning is powered electrically, so that it can work even with the engine off. These will drain the car's battery some, but the air conditioning controller will automatically turn off the air conditioning before this becomes a problem then turn it back on as soon as the engine is automatically restarted when it is again needed to drive the car.

If the engine will not turn over, replace the battery. If it will turn over but not start, check the fuel filter. Remove it and turn the key on. It should spray fuel on the ground. If it doesn't, replace the fuel pump. First thing to do, however, is check all the fuses.
