    Hello, it is hard to say for sure without having the vehicle to run some tests, but it sounds like an electrical problem, maybe multiple electrical problems. I would start by checking all the main grounds, battery to chassis ground, chassis to frame ground if there is one on this model, amp draw test the starter, and check the ignition switch circuit for shorts. And does it start right back up after stalling out, or do you have to wait a while to start it?
