If all lights come on when using the A/C then check your alternator for low charge. Here is a link to checking the alternator:

How did they check? Was the charging test done in the car and what was the numbers? Is the fault all the time or after your vehicle runs for a while?

They did a charging test. 12.66 for the battery and 13 for the alternator. Only when I use the AC and when I use the audio auxiliary port to play my music through my phone. As long as I don't use the AC and audio auxiliary port for music no warning lights don't show.

13 volts is low and it probably goes lower when using the A/C for a while. You should check the charging system when all the warning lights start lighting up and the music stops playing.
