check engine light did come one one time before this happend. i do have a scanner and the code came out to be low volt bank one

but now no codes and no check engine light. would an o2 sensor cause this?
I have worked on a couple of cars that did this and the problem was the torque converter was locking up. Try rolling the vehicle before putting in drive, it should go fine until you try to stop- then it will shut down. Good luck.
