Re: CAR CUT OFF WHEN DRIVING
Have u checked for spark? U can pull a plug wire off, install a plug in the wire (saves u from taking a plug out), place plug on metal surface, crank engine while someone watches for a spark. If no spark check coil and ignitor (inside distributor). If u have spark check to see if u have gas making it to plugs. Crank engine over (no more than 10 seconds, give it a 10 second rest, try again for 10 sec. etc, ) After doing this for several minutes, pull a plug and check it--it should be wet from gas. If the plug is dry, u aren't getting gas (change fuel filter, check fuel pump). countrycurt0

HI.wILLIE.this is difficult to without test driving it .i am going to assume it cuts off while driving.dies off and then kicks back to life in a few seconds.could be electrical or fuel starvation.i think u need a hands on diagnosis.hope this helps.Ali
The check engine light indicates that there is a problem with one or more of the engine sensors (knock, airflow, etc.) this can also include the transmission sensor.
The possible transmission problem may be causing both warning lights to trigger even before the vehicle's driving performance is affected. Warning lights are indicators of the car's parts that may need your attention. Just like a toothache with our bodies.
Don't wait for any drop in performance before you have this problem checked out by a qualifed technician. Early intervention has proven that is saves you the trouble and greater expense.
I had the same problem. My car would shut off without any warning, I changed my Main Relay located under the dash, right below the change slot on the left hand side. I have not had a problem since. The price at Napa Auto parts runs about $68.00. This should fix your problem.
I know that early 90's Honda's had problems and in fact a recall on the distributor. Might want to replace the distributor. Inside of the distributor is a part called the igniter which is the ignition module and that is what normally goes out. I cannot remember if you have to replace the whole distributor to get the igniter or if you can just replace the igniter itself. Has been a few years since I have worked on one. hope this helps but if not please contact me. I'm not sure about the drive light flashing thing though, new one on me.
