Tip & How-To about Honda Accord

'98 Honda Accord shuts down while you are driving.

Faulty ignition was the problem. There had been a recall back in '02 or '03 to replace the ignition because the car would inadvertently shut down. Checked many sources and finally found an experienced service rep. manager who remembered the recall and solved the problem by replacing the ignition under the old recall notice.
