Our 2002 Ody with 6,066 mi on it just stalled as we were crossing an intersection and just after applying the breaks. It restarted immediately but now the battery light, break light and all door open indicator lights are still on. The engine is also surging in neutral or without applying the gas. At our initial stop at a nearby garage they suggested that it is an alternator problem. I am wondering if anybody else has experienced this kind of thing. We had no previous problems with the battery or warning lights prior to the sudden stall so I wonder if it could be something other than just the alternator?
Any suggestions would be helpful.
Thank you.

To all who are interested,
The problem was diagnosed as a loose alternator...evidently the alternator's restraining bolt came loose and this led to a decreased output from the alternator, eventually running the battery down and causing the associated lights and stall.
Hope this helps.
