Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if your engine light and battery light come on as well as the check gauges warning, and the engine sometimes dies. The most likely cause for the engine and battery lights coming on together would be the alternator not charging, which can also cause the engine to die if you continue to drive.

Do you know what fault codes are setting?

battery light come on as well as the check gauges warning just come on not the engine light

what could it be when?
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

Testing would need to be done at the time the lights are on but if the battery light comes on it's almost surely because the alternator isn't charging, which is usually the alternator itself.
