Slow down..the car died as if from vapor locking..Trouble codes…

Customer Question
when driving car and began...
when driving car and began to slow down, the car died as if from vapor locking and could not start again till cooled or waiting for a long while. Trouble codes that came up after engine died were P-0727 and P-0335. And before that happened I got P-0411. Can you tell me why? Now car is just sitting and battery looks dead and until boosting to start -runs ok for about 10 min and charging at 13.65 volts. And now battery still looks dead, with no charge. Can you help?
