2010 Mazda Mazda3 - Shuts down

All lights come one and car shuts down while driving

Is the CEL on? If so, post the codes. If CEL is flashing, have it towed.

Abs light came on first, then the battery, then all came on it spuddered and shut off.

I am going to make a wild donkey guess here… bad alternator or you lost the serpentine belt.

You haven’t posted nearly enough info for us to diagnose this over the internet. A tech with their hands on the car and their computer plugged in would be far more valuable. Have it towed to a shop.

How old is the battery?
