Default 02 Still dimming headlights

Still having a problem with the headlights dimming when AC on.
Also sometimes feel a jerk or slam and a few nights ago felt the jerk doing about 40 & the door locks popped or locked after feeling the jerking.

Battery was replaced last week (was 6 months old) in which checked alternator, said was good.
Took car into shop this morning, told them problem inwhich they tested everything said nothing wrong.
I am afraid to drive at night now & wont turn on Ac ( I live in FLA !!)
Any ideas ??
