The fuel cutoff switch has a problem. It is ocated in the right rear quarter in the luggage compartment. You might even find the switch submerged in water. That happens sometimes due to a plugged drain hole in the bottom of the panel.

Why is the car stalling when you stop at light?

Well I am assuming that you car has a manual transmission, and it is stalling because you are not pushing in the clutch when you come to a stop. The more likely reason is because your idle is set to low on your car. Your most likely culprit is the carburetor. However if you car is fuel injection I would take it into a mechanic and get their opinion.

Do you have a "service engine" light? Stalling could be caused by a wide variety of problems, such as a faulty sensor, ECM, or even the need for a tune up. Reading fault codes can narrow down the problem, if you take it to a local autozone, they will read the codes for free.

Why would the fuel cutout light come on on your 1989 Ford Escort GT and how do you go about fixing it?

Does the car start? because if it doesn't... then your fuel cutoff has been tripped, likely by the car getting hit closer to the gas tank and tripping the cutoff valve. if it's anything like the cutoff in a '91 escort, you should be able to take off the small panel access in the trunk/hatch and reset the switch, if it's the same, it's pretty easy
