2014 Chevrolet Malibu - Stalls

car stalls at red light , but will take a boost right away.

I don’t know what that means. Could you explain what “take a boost” means?

I guess that means a battery jump with a battery pack. The op should have codes read , the battery and alternator checked and then post back.

These cars are designed to shut off when stopped? Is that what you are referring too?
