This problem would take research , factory service repair information. Hooking up a professional type scanner or the factory tool ,checking for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's in all the modules on the vehicle ( 20) or so. Viewing data parameters on the scanner. With the complex electrical an electronics on your vehicle it could be a lot of different thing's .

Have you had the throttle valve cleaned?

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
