Hello, my name is Bobby. It sounds like you either have a failing body control module, or more commonly a bad ignition switch. The ignition switch starts to fail internally and sends the wrong signals causing the vehicle to shut down. It will also cause these lights to come on. Did you plan on fixing this yourself?
