Question type: Maintenance & Repair

While stopping at a stoplight my dash lights come on and

I have regular maintenance my vehicle.
Thank you!

Sounds electrical, an aggressive gremlin. If the engine isn't stalling, just stops dead as if you were turning off the key, it would need some diagnosis from a good independent garage with a specialty in electrical issues. Your local MB deal may just want to throw parts at it. This will take a while to isolate
