My car stalled while I was driving it. The car lights, alarm, dash lights and radio still work. I checked all of the fuses and relays look good.

You likely have a crankshaft position sensor issue. Other problems that may exist include a faulty fuel pump or an an occurring vacuum leak. I would have a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your home or office to inspect your car's stalling issue and verify what repairs need to be made.
