The only thing the is on when this happen is the battery light I turn the car back on with no problem. If I drive the car for 2 min it won't do that when the car is trying to shut down I put it in neutral and it wont shut off?
Do you

If the alternator isnt charging your battery dies while driving and you wont be able to start it or jump start it. Keep me posted on what you find thats where I would start.

I miss read what you were asking but I would still have the alternator and battery tested to rule that out.A weak alternator can cause strange things to happen. Before you do that have the computer scanned for codes. Write down the exact nunbers not code descriptions.

The battery light and rpms moving around could be from the engine dieing so it could be a fuel pressure issue clogged cat etc. So we will have to rule things out till we find the problem.
