My car has been cutting off when I stop at stop lights and stop signs. Sometimes even before I stop all the way. It cuts right back on after putting car in park. Recently it started cutting off and not restarting, going completely dead. After a jump, its back on the road but cuts off again. Any suggestions?

If you need a jump start, that would mean a failing battery and the charging system needs to be checked.

The stalling during idling or slowing down could be related but most likely is due to excessively low idling speed. Have the throttle body and IAC cleaned and retest.
