Sound,s like a alternator issue,go have it checked,and your battery all so.

The nut on my battery was loose and my truck will also turn off without sputter or warning, just shuts down I don't even have to go over a bump. its done it idling in park before. I took my battery to auto zone and they check it, my battery was fine, but the nut/bolt going to the positive side was not threading correctly into my battery. I had to clean and hand tighten it to stop it from happening. I agree with the guy above me.
