When you say "Car Stops" I'm assuming you mean stalls... First and foremost, when you put your key in the ignition and turn the ignition on, but don't start the engine, do any of the dash warning/Indicator lights come on. They should because this is how you test to see that they are working. Your check engine light should be seen at this time, and when you start the car should turn off, should you not have seen it, The light could be burned out.

As for why it stops, I'd need more info, about the car and what exactly happens when it stalls or stops. there are things you can check though, make sure battery cables are tight, because if your losing power to the spark plugs your car will stop or stall. You may even have electrical power to all dash and head lights, but if the connections are poor, not enough power is getting to the spark plugs.

If you've noticed a rough idle lately on the vehicle, it could be clogged fuel filter, I'm not sure if there is a means of timing the vehicle without special equipment, but timing could be off. ( Engine ) there's lots of possible reasons, that could cause this to happen. More info would be better!

How to reset engine light

the engine light is there to tell you that there has been a sensor found that is outside set parameters and you need to have it checked asap. It has nothing to do with starting. It will be the immobiliser that is stopping the car from starting. To reset the engine light use a code reader

2005 freestar driving down the road suddenly starts stumbling rpms drop and emission light comes on then dies. Scaned it but says nothing is wrong

The check engine light will always come on when the engine stalls.It could be your fuel filter needs replaced or your fuel pump is going out. The fuel pumps can heat up and stop working, then after they have a chance to cool off they will work just fine until they get hot again.

1994 Chev Cavalier - engine light comes on randomly

One cause of the light to come on randomly is a loose gas cap. If it's not replaced tightly (turned until it clicks three or four times) it throws the light on. It's one thing to check anyway.
