Default 1993 Mazda Mx6 4 cylinder trouble

Car will shut off when idle sometimes. While driving it the engine light will come on then the car wants to turn off unless i barely touch the gas, if i press to hard it will cut out and a few times if i floor it, it will come back to life on the highway. the other day i was sitting in driveway in park idling, when it turned off on me, i noticed a clicking coming from the fusebox area and my fans would turn off and on. would all this be caused by wiring or fuel problems? confused, can someone help? thanks

Is this when the car is cold or warm? Do the lights turn off or just the engine?

Have you cleaned the grounds, etc?

ok update. so i was driving and it did it again today so i pulled over and observed. so everytime it started sputtering and wanting to shut off, the dummy light would flicker while the engine light game on and off. even when the car was off and fans were running, when the fans would sound like they were turning off then on, the dummy lights would flicker... electrical? fuses? fuse box? sensors? im so lost when it comes to these imports. lol
