2007 BMW X5 shuts down while driving.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
There are many things that can cause the engine to die while driving, it will take some testing at the time the problem is happening to know for sure what is going on.
Is the battery light actually coming on and you're continuing to drive it until the battery dies?
