Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
The ABS system wouldn't have the capability to kill the engine.
It sounds as if you may have a torque converter clutch issue. If the torque converter clutch is applied at a stop then it will drag the engine down and kill it, basically the same as letting out on the clutch with a manual trans in gear but holding the brake.
If that's what you're feeling then the problem is in the replacement trans, either a solenoid or valve body issue or the torque converter itself.
