I had the exact same problem for a whole year. It started by turning off at stoplights, and then not turning on, and this became more and more frequent. After a while, it would turn off while I was driving at low speeds and wouldn't turn on for a couple of hours.
In the end, I had to sleep in the car a couple of times while waiting for it to turn on (luckily the seats are comfortable).
Took my Cirrus to about 8 different shops and the problem wouldn't show up, not mattering how hard they tried to make it appear. I replaced the O2 sensor, EGR valve, MAP sensor and it didn't work. In the end I replaced the whole computer, which solved the problem.

I should have read these comments before I purchased my car. I got the same electrical problems and I don't know what to do. Maybe I will buy another car... ;-(

I had the same stalling problem with my '95 Cirrus. Eventually, the car wouldn't start at all. My local mechanic fixed the car with some advice from a Chrysler mechanic, replacing the crankshaft sensor. Now the car starts, but the stalling problem has begun again. After it stalls, I have no trouble starting the car and it will often run fine the rest of the day. Don't know what to do at this point.

I just bought a 95 Cirrus AS IS; the problem is that the people that previously owned it drove it home one night with NO problems whatsoever, and had not had any previous problems at all with it stalling, but the next morning it just would not start. Now I have it sitting in a parking lot and everybody I ask about it can't think of what it is. One said it might be the ignition coil, another said it was the whole distributor. It turns over, and supposedly it sparks, but I haven't seen it. The fuel pump is fine though. Did anyone have my exact problem and get it fixed?

I have a 96 Cirrus and it stalled quite a few times. I had the map sensor replaced and it fixed the problem.
