Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The lights coming on and engine dying may be happening because multiple modules including the powertrain control module are losing power. If the PCM loses power then the engine will die, you'll see warning lights for each respective module come on if it isn't communicating with the instrument cluster.

What year and model is the vehicle?
