Why I'm at a red light or stop sign my car shuts off? When I try to crank it again it does start back up. What could be the problem

Might be a bad battery combined with a bad alternator, or a loss of fuel and spark together. Might be as simple as a really dirty air cleaner. Or maybe something related to fuel pressure, like a fuel pump relay, or even the Electronic Throttle Control (ETC). You need to have a mechanic diagnose this.
