When I am driving and I stop completely at a stop sign or red light and then proceed to accelerate, the car chokes up and sometimes dies. Also, sometimes while driving the brakes would randomly not work. The peddle does not go to the floor when that happens, it actually won't go down. Today, when I started the car it did start then instantly died, it did that twice. After that though it wouldn't even turnover. All the lights work as well as the remote lock so idk if it could be the battery. Some advice would be much appreciated!

The brake pedal would be hard to depress when the engine stalls.
Check the battery terminal connections, ensure they are clean and tight.
Check the fuses.
Have the battery and alternator tested.
