Why does my Mitsubishi Lancer shut off at stops light and when slowed down? Why does it fail to move up a slope after restarting, then shuts down again?

Asked by Apr 12, 2017 at 07:25 PM about the 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Its a 2002 Lancer. It shuts off automatically at stop lights and it acts like its going to shut off when I remove my foot from the gas pedal. When it shuts off the battery light comes on. If it shuts off while going up a slope, it will not accelerate any further until I reverse down to to a flat area. While on the slope, it continue to shut off after starting once I press down on the gas.
