What is wrong when it's cold and my 1998 Trooper powers down with the ABS light, the battery light, and the four wheel drive light blinking

that is called a STALL.
the engine was running , but now its STALLED.
and all lamps come on that is a Feature of all cars. (modern)
the that is the lamp self test. same as when you first turn on the key.
the operators guide explains all that...........
so the real question is why it stalls.
it means the engine is running so bad the EFI brain could not avoid the stall, it tries REAL HARD not to stall.
we do tests to find true cause. but usually its this.
1: engine never tuned up. the 60,000mile service POINTS skipped.
hark it fails. (99% of all old cars do that, due to skips)
2: LOST spark , see #1
3: lost fueling, see #1 filters. or worse.
4: flooding, over fueling. more tests.

got tools? or just want guesses?????

1998 Honda Accord engine rumbles and stops

rumbles?, did the RPM drop below 800 RPM? that is called idle failure
and when it does, idle can go to 400 rpm and will shake hard.
and is normal for illegal idle speeds. so post that first.
post that engine stalls
and that the RPM is 400-500 just before the stall.
then post if the fast right foot can save the stall (a key test !!!!)
if easy the ISC is sticking.
if tad hard the EGR is stuck open'
if impossible to save. then more possible (many)
ever do the 60k mile tune up this decade????,. if not why not./ now.

Engine runs about 15 min. then stalls and won t restart till it cools a bit

Could be a coil, relay, fuel pump, or several other components.
Do you loose fuel pressure or spark when it stalls ?

1998 Metro Starts hard, runs or a little then stalls and very hard start?

When was the last time you had a tune-up? It can be a ton of things wrong. Start with the obvious things first, or the cheapest to check.
First off, how long does it actually run good for, once you get it started?
That in itself, means alot.
