Good evening
When the key is on and the engine is off, please scroll down and get me all the codes off the diag screen on the odometer display 164 tells me that you have a switch fault on the dash, this won't cause of the engine to shut down.
Will need some more info from you.

The engine shuts down after driving a couple of miles and when I push down on the accelator nothing happens. Then I pull over and shut off the engine for about 5 minutes and then the problem is gone for a couple of miles again. When the problem starts up the red light for the shut down engine comes on and so does the check engine light.
