check and see if your battery cables are still attatched I took my car to get detailed one time and they did the engine bay as well. They ended up taking out the battery for some reason and did not bolt it back down so when I hit the brakes to come to a stop the battery went forward and ripped out the cable, same thing shut down just like you described.
