Did you get your car scanned? Since check engine light is indicating better to get it scanned as soon as possible. Don't delay this as this may or may not be something related to the AC as you suspect. 

The Civic 10th generation UK model is known to have AC condenser leaks but the symptoms are a bit different where you experience a drop in AC cooling. So get it scanned soon, as continuing to drive without addressing this issue won't be the ideal thing in my thinking. Please update the forum as well on what is the cause and what was done as the fix :)

What's your mileage? I had the same problem. Turned out I had to replace the battery but mine was a 2018 and I had already done 20,000,kms. I tested it at the battery shop and I think the guys said it was at 83% and no need to change but one day the car stalled so I had to do it anyway.

This could be the battery  by the sound of it.

Yeah - this is a bit of a common issue - even though the cause is not known it's widely believed this is due to the gas used in the new model. While there's no hard evidence, R1234yf seems to have a higher operating pressure than the regular 134A - either way it seems R1234YF+ our local high temperatures is a bad combo causing premature condenser damage. As you correctly said it is probably NOT OP's problem.
