WHY DOES MY CAR SOMETIMES CUT OUT LOSE AND REGAIN POWER ALL OF A SUDDEN AND WHY DOES IT SOMETIMES DIE?

2004 Pontiac Grand Prix • 182,000 miles

It's a 2004 grand prix. While driving I feel the engine "cut out" and then regain power right after. Don't know how else to describe it. There's another symptom along with it. Sometimes when I press the brake hard to come to a stop, it not only stops, but also dies.

Check all battery connections, both power and gounds. Is the check engine light on? I have seen cranks sensors and the harness chafe and cause these issues.
