Hey there. Your car's sensor lights come on when there is something not functioning properly which is likely related to the car stalling. The car may stall for a wide variety of reasons such as going into "Limp Mode" which is something the car's computer does when it senses something I not functioning properly. The reason for this is more of a safety measure in an effort to keep you and car safe and to not cause additional damage. The stalling may be related to failing throttle position sensor, mass air flow sensor, crankshaft position sensor, camshaft position sensor or potentially failing ignition coils. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home to diagnose this using a scanning tool which will download critical data from the car's computer related to the sensor lights coming on. This data will help indicate what the potential issues may be.
