During the past month my '06 Element has been stalling out when I brake. This ONLY happens during my first five minutes or less of driving, after which it is fine. It does not appear to be weather-temperature related, and I recently replaced my battery.

Occasionally my check engine light comes on and stays on for days, though this does not specifically happen when the car stalls- I don't know if this could be related to the above problem (some computer issue???).

Ideas?

Thanks!

I believe this a sign of your idle controller is need to replace soon. It happened to me one morning and when I got to the mechanic shop and it did not happen again and I replaced the controller anyway to be safe. It is very common on Honda.
