If changing the battery does not solve problem, or only solves it until the battery dies then have the alternator tested. I have noticed on several occasions with a couple of my vehicles that at times of very high moisture in the air they do not stay running, once the humidity goes down they are fine.

mine did the same thing and it was oxygen sensor
since engine light came on there should be an error code
on computer.Get a diagnostic checker or take to a garage and have them hook uo to the diag connector. I bought a diagnostic checker few years ago and it has come in very handy
sure hope this helps!!

It is registering engine too lean due to either too much air entering the engine via an intake leak or by an inaccurate reading from the MAF.
Often on these cars, particularly if they have used Toyota brand air filters, the MAF collects fuzz over time from the air filter.
As this 'fuzz' collects on the MAF element, it acts as an insulator and skews the airflow reading for the ecm; it sees less air than is actually going through, so when it checks your mixture on the way out of the engine it realizes that there is more air than it thought was going in.
Pull your MAF out of the air hose (two philips screws) and clean it with non-chlorinated brake cleaner or "MAF cleaner" available at your local parts store. Look in there with a flashlight, you will see a little coiled wire covered in little bits of fuzz before you start.
Do NOT touch the element, just use the cleaner to blast it clean. Let it air dry completely before reinstalling.
Clear the code and call it a day!

If the engine stalls abruptly on your Cirrus, as if some one clamped
it, then I would suspect that the 'lock-up' function on the torque
converter of the transmission is in the lock-up position. That means it
is the same as popping the clutch on a conventional transmission car,
which cause the same stall. If you can't drive the car, I would call
around to several independent transmission shops to find one that is
familiar with the Chrysler 41TE transmission and that appears to be
honest. Ask if they have a diagnostic readout box to communicate with
the transmission control computer. If they do then have the car towed
there and let them try a readout. If they get a code 38 or 0740
(depending upon what year model you have there) then that would show
that the lock-up is the problem. If you are lucky the problem will be
with a solenoid switch or valve in the box on the side of the
transmission which can be corrected easily without removing the
transmission. Because this possibility (along with about 6 other
causes) is worth pursuing, I would want a shop that is not going to
talk you into a "rebuild" without first looking into all the possible
reasons for the lock-up condition so you aren't "taken for a ride".
So ask friends if they know a good honest shop and check them out as to how well they understand the Chrysler transmission. You may end up at a Chrysler dealer, but insist on their trying all the other possible causes before authorizing removal of the transmission which is a very expensive repair and may not be necessary.
