Default Engine Cuts out With Check Engine Light

Hello. My son got his 1st car yesterday: 1993 Stealth R/T. Inspecting the car didn't seem to reveal anything out of place for a car this age. Driving the car home, the engine just stopped. The check engine light on the dash came on. Turned the key competely to the off position, and restarted the car. There was no indication that something was wrong. It 'feels' like there's some loose connector that just killed electrical power to the engine only because the dash warning lights were still on.
We're going to clean up the battery connections (long shot, I know). Would appreciate if anyone could point us in a direction of what else to check? Is this something that others have experienced? Also, had a bugger of a time turning off the rear wiper. Assuming that the switch is just on it's last leg. Shouldn't be an issue replacing that.
Any help would be appreciated!!!

Go after every electrical connector you can find under the hood. Its probably going to be PCM, cam, or crank sensor related though. Can you get codes read? See if anything obvious presents itself?

I'll look at getting codes read. From what i've read so far, this can be done with a volt meter and counting pulses associated with each of the different modules? Anyway, will post what I find.
Thanks for the response!!!

OBDI. Short terminal a and b together on the ALDL connector, and turn the ignition on, count the flashes of the check engine light. They are all two-digit codes.
