Engine shut off

I was sliding on ice yesterday in my 97 sahara. I pumped the brakes, hard and fast, and the engine shut off???
It was hard to restart....
Any ideas why?

Sounds as if you were probably putting too much of a load on your battery. For example power steering and pumping brakes. Park you toy, turn it on then in park start pumping your brakes and turning your wheel it will probably do it again sounds like alternator or battery on it's way out to me. Don't feel bad my stang gets real low in battery power when I do it too

Huh? How would either of those put excessive load on the battery? And how would excessive load on the battery cause the engine to quit?

I don't have an answer to the OP's question, but the above does not make any sense to me.

Just my 2 cents my 97 saleen mustang does it. If I slam on my brakes and start turning my wheel left and right my battery indicator goes down alot more than
It should.

Pumping the brakes does put a load on the engine or something... while idling, pump your brakes really fast and then on the final pump, hold the pedal down and your idle will drop quite low for a moment.

Combine that with either cranking the wheel or if the tires suddenly grabbed traction and lugged the engine down and it could possibly stall the engine out?
