Default 2008 Equinox with engine/stabiltrek issues

I have a 2008 Equinox and I have been having issues. I will be driving and all of the sudden I will have bells going off and messages saying Service throttle, service stabiltrek, service traction control and engine powering down. (sometimes it is all messages sometimes a just one or two of them) My car shuts down. I start it after a minute and it runs fine with the engine light on. After about 2-3 times of starting my car up the engine light goes off. At first the dealer said it was from my remote start I had installed. So we removed it and I am still having problems. Any suggestions on what it could be? I will be taking it back to the dealer because they said the remote start was not letting them read all of the proper codes. Sounds kind of funny to me. But the car does run perfectly fine, no noises, or issues besides the problem discribed above.

I had the remote start installed about a month after I had purchased the car. That was almost a year ago. I went through sound decisions in racine for the remote start and I am not sure where the crank wire is from. I have had the remote start uninstalled and it is still doing what it was before. I did notice that it happens real quickly after I fill up my gas tank. I am not sure if that has anything to do with it.
