    It starts up and drives great but when I get to a light and start to stop it shuts off.. I let it sit for about 30 seconds and it fires right back up and drive till I get to the next light/stop

    My first thought it a bad Brake Booster it runs off Vaccum from the motor and may be pulling a lot of vacuum killing the motor but then most likely you would feel something during breaking or hear an air leak? Check around the motor for a vacuum leak with the motor running of course and have someone step on the brakes as you are looking and listening.
