Only if your alternator is not working properly. If you are always charging your battery, check your alternator belt. That was the solution for my escort, a new $10.00 belt.

You need to repair the cause of the code that turned the light on. You can then reset the light with a scan tool or a battery disconnect.

No it should not stall if your alternator is good. It's not good to disconnect a battery with engine running. It can cause a spike and ruin the computer. It was ok to do that years ago before 1980.
