I have had this problem a couple of times. I start up and run no problem, driving down the road in cold weather, my car will surge and the rpms will flutter then the car will shut down. Initially will not start, but if I sit for 5 min it starts up and runs just fine. I have been told it might be an ignition control relay or part of an alarm that is not disconected. It has happened before then it will not occur for several months.

If you are not able to press the shift button in, it is likely the brake light switch. When it acts up, press the brake pedal and have someone see if the brake lights are coming on. If not, you probably need a new switch.
I finally just had this fixed on my 1992 Integra, after dealing with it the past year or
so (same problem, and only in cold weather). They replaced the shifter switch (parts and labor
cost me $150), and it's been fine ever since, I'm very happy to say!
