My recommendation is just a shot in the dark, but you have nothing to lose. The next time it happens wiggle your key in your ignition switch to see if the vehicle will restart. Sometimes the ignition switch goes bad, especially if you have a ton of junk hanging on your keychain. Also, the keys are chipped. Try a different key. Hopefully the trouble isn't in your steering column with whatever it is that reads the chip in the key as that is hard to diagnose.
Honestly though, it could be a ton of things and I would not want to be in your position as the stalling could get you killed.

Depending on how far and how long you are driving between shut offs, it could be a problem with your anti theft unit and key.
My 2004 did the same thing in the first week. The dealer never programed the fob to the vehicle. So it could be a problem with the key or the antitheft box.
Good luck. I hope your dealers are better than mine.

I hate hear that you are having such problems. I have spent several years under the hood of vehicles and this problem sounds simple. When does it shut off? Is it at a red light or stop sign or when you are going real slow? If so have them test you alternator, it could be it is bad or going bad and it is not keeping your battery charged so the vehicle shuts down. They should have already checked this but if I know dealership service departments they have not. If they give you and grief just find a local garage any ask them to check the alternator. I wish you were close by I would love to help.
#550 of 687 Nissan Rear Air Conditioning Inoperable

I recently bought a 2005 Nissan Armada SE, 45,000 miles. The front AC and the first row floor AC work perfectly. The rear air conditioner has no air flow. I checked and re checked the AC button functionality. I replaced all the fuses pertaining the to HVAC and blower circuits. Nothing has worked. Before going to nissan and paying out my nose...does anyone have any idea how to fix this? Please respond! Can you email me also at gabriel.genglergmail.com?

Why do you have to go to Nissan and pay through your nose? You could go to a local mechanic and do the same....
Have you checked the circuit with a tester to see if power is getting to the unit? Sounds like a blown motor but to guess at something like this without testing a few things is like shooting a shotgun in the dark.

There are several ways to operate the AC in the 2nd Row. My guess is that it's the buttons that are the issue.

The several ways that you mentioned. Are they explained in the owners manual or do you need the factory repair manual? Just curious...

They should be in the regular manual. For instance if you have it on "R" for the fan then you have to control it from the rear controls. If the rear is "on" but the front control for the rear is "off" then it won't work. Also if you have heat on it only comes out the floor vents. If you have AC on it only comes out the top vents. You can't have hot air come from the top and can't have cold air from the bottom.

That's exactly how my Denali's rear controls work. If the main control in the front is "OFF" the rear controls will not work. This of course is all explained in the owner's manual.

I'm not sure how the Denali's worked but I know that you can turn the rear off in the from the front controls or put it on "rear control" or control the setting for the rear from the front. It can be confusing. In 08 they allow the rear to actually direct hot air out of the top and cold air out the bottom if you wish, similar to the traditional controls found on the front.
