There's a solinoid in the transmission.Suggest to check that first.

Turn on interior lights. Start engine. If the lights go out when the engine stalls, you have a bad ignition switch.

If a car starts then just stalls then starts up again with no problem?

There is most likely something in the gas tank. When the car starts the fuel pump starts sucking in fuel and when the trash gets to it the gas will not be able to flow through the clogged pump so the car stalls. When it stalls the fuel pump stops suction and the trash comes out allowing it to start again.
