1998 Buick Regal Question: car just quits running after i apply brakes and slow down to make a turn

 

Question

I have replaced the radiator, the starter and the car will just quit running at different intervals after I apply brakes to make a turn it seems. And, sometimes when I start up, the anti-lock brake light and the trac-off light will come on and stay on and then the speedometer needle just goes crazy bounding back and forth. I have had the hoses check also, if electrical, what would cause the car to just stop running?

    First thing is to check the battery cable connections as a loose or corroded cable will cause intermittent power failure

    Could be the ignition switch...not where you place the key though.
