wow. How old is your battery, sounds like jostling it around causes electrical unreliability~ there are magnets in the wheels that the abs needs to see so it can tell how fast each wheel is turning...your looseness on your battery or unreliability of 'brown' power has made the lights flash~ get a new battery and check the ground cable to the chassis and to the engine~

I would get those codes read. Any flashing warning light is not good. It could be a master cylinder problem since it's stalling. Call around and find out if it's safe to drive.
