What would be the reason for a 1990 Nissan Maxima to cut off in the middle of driving It just starts back up when the key is turned seconds later?

I got the same problem with my 1990 Nissan Maxima . I was just about to ask when I saw your posting. Mine does it particularly when I step on the breaks and the engine will just die on me and the anti lock and break signal will light up. It will start back on but does it again after a few miles. I need some help on this one too if anybody can answer it.
