They are correct in that the key battery will cause the error message. But that will not cause the car to die while driving this is cause by something else. You may have a problem with your fuel pump or a bad sensor. They will need to scan for codes to see the reason it stalled

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
