    Security systems don't typically cause stalling. They do cause issues starting. And, a security system can cause a drain on the battery.

    I just don't know what to make of the stalling based off of your statements. You could have a loss of ignition spark or fuel system pressure. A tech needs to check the problem as it occurs to see what element is missing.
