Default Car stalls at traffic light

I was driving home from an undisclosed location, when I stopped at the traffic light, the car just randomly stalled. I put the car in park and restart the car. No check engine lights or anything! Whatís wrong with the car?

Have you tried connecting an OBD scanner to see for any code?
It is possible have a "Pending code" which would not show Check Engine Light.

I donít have an OBD scanner to check for pending codes. What kind of OBD scanner do you guys recommend?

If you don't have a Scanner, stores such as Autozone, if you have in your area, can use their scanner to get any codes for you (Free)
The scanner I am using is called (OBD2 ELM327 V2.1 Bluetooth Car Scanner Android Torque Auto Diagnostic Scan Tool) if you search for it on EBay. Very useful with Torque app on phone.

Search on IACV idle air control valve after confirming that your Check engine light works and you dont have any error codes.
