I have a 2017 Kia Forte and not really sure what's wrong with it. My traction control light will come on and my rpm and speedometer will stop working and I loose acceleration. I turn the car off and back on and it goes away but then the car will be ok for a few minutes the die on me. Not sure if this is 2 separate issues or 1. Would my traction control sensor cause it to die? I thought it might be the alternator but then the battery wouldn't charge enough for me to even start it. Please help! Any advice or guidance would be appreciated, thank you.

Electrical issues = ☹

Start with:
Battery condition, voltage at rest, voltage while running
Battery cables, clean and tight, esp. the goofy Kia clamps
Ground wires, there are lots of them, clean and tight
Maybe pull the fuse for trac. control? See what happens
