Car Quits on 2006 Kia Sportage

Three times in the last week the car just dies completely when coming to a stop. All dash lights come on. Put it in park & car starts so far. Very scary.

You will most likely have a code. get it retrieved and traced down. A common problem for dying at stops on these cars is the Crank Sensor, but get it diagnosed first.
