No check engine light at all. After I disconnect the battery for awhile, It starts' right up.

2005 jeep grand cherokee 4.7 liter v8. when coming to a stop, the engine stalls. Problem is happening more often now.

HI I have a 1996 Dodge grand caravan ES With a 3.8 LT motor front wheel drive. The motor is not missing but with I come to a stop at and intersection it will die on me it starts right back up and runs good. It doesn't happen all the time it doesn't die going down the road at a steady speed only when I come to a stop. The engine light doesn't come on so I think it might be something minor. I have cleaned the battery terminals and it's still doing the same thing
