    The car shuts off both in motion and idle. When driving the car it will turn off while you are driving. This happens often. There is no warning. If the car is in park it will also shut off. I am unsure why this happens. It will crank right back up. It has a stock keyless entry. no after market alarm.

    is this problem when your are in motion or at an idle? does it have any aftermarket keyless entry or alarm system connected?

I have a 1998 Chevy blazer it starts but when it warms up Bout ten mins the engine shuts down

How long since a tune-up? Are there any applicable trouble codes? Some of the national brand auto stores will check codes for free.
When the vehicle stalls, does it restart quickly or do you have to wait awhile? If it cranks good but you have to wait awhile to get it to start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also check fuel injector pulse.

My 2006 ford fusion was working fine till i came to a stop it started shaking a red light wrench came on lasted bout ten min when i got home turned car husband got in and started the car it wasnt...

Could be a lot of things ... could be something as simple as a piece of dirt or leaf in front of the mass air flow sensor. This will give the computer false readings causing it to adjust the fuel mixture causing the car to run rough.
