You probably have an electrical problem. It is recommended to connect to an OBD-II scanner to the computer and recording data while you drive so that you can see what happens during one of these events. Set it up to record some critical parameters to the fuel and ignition, like misfire counts, and maybe short term fuel trim. If the scanner records that communications is lost when the car stalls, then you lost power to the computer.
However there are various reasons as why car engine stops while driving…

Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.

Truck has been sitting for a year or more what should i do to start it.

take plugs out and turn engine with spanner, if moves round fine. then run engine. if it is very stiff all way round turning change the engine oil. then repeat. check belts are in goo condition no splits or crazie splits as this will snap. gine engine cables a good squirt of wd40 when you think its good then start engine first with no plugs in a few times the with them in dont run for to long just ten min then turn off. give a good check round then should be fine to run. change belts etc as soon as possible.
