RANDOM STALLS

I have a 1999 Honda Accord LX, 4 cyl. With 150,000 trouble free miles until now. I recently had my 150,000 mile service done at a national car repair chain. They replaced the distributer cap, rotor, cables, and plugs. Immeadiatley after, my car began stalling at random times. When the stall occurs, I could be going 80 miles an hour or stopped, but the same thing happens, the tachometer and speedometer falls to zero and there is a series of 6 or 7 beeps. When I am traveling at high speeds the car usually turns back on by itself, when I am stopped, I start it, the engine turns over, and then stops. This happens for a few minutes then it works no problem. I switched out the cables, next I will try the cap and rotor.I dont know what the problem is, could it be a fuel pump? I have also noticed that when I brake the car seems to jerk a little right before I stop. Maybe it's related? I also somtimes have an issue where the car would jerk when switching form reverse to drive. Could this all be related? Please help!

I would look at one possibility being the ignition switch.
