Dies while decellerating

Check your oil. It is possible that your car has a low oil pressure shutoff and when cresting the top of the hill, the oil goes to the back of the oil pan, telling the sensor it has no oil and shutting down the car before any damage occurs.

Fuse box diagram

fuses are in the operators guide.
the glove box guide is free at all honda dealers and is online.
get one and keep it in the car,,, "safety"
the tests for A/C start at the fuses.
the blower , must blow.
then is the compression clutch engaged or not.
post back the clutch status and we can work thru the 100 pages
in the FSM.
or read it your self at
the fsm is free. see it here
1st line

see page 62 for schematic of the A/c
as you can see the PCM decides when the clutch is active
but there are 6 ways, for it to decide, not to run AC/

on the 99 there is a cab themostat , (hark) that can stop AC
and so cant he freon hi/low switch, do not bypass this device !!
see page 62-2 for stat schematic.
see page 62-3 (theory)
if the out door temp drops below 37F it cuts AC.
if the engine overheats, cuts AC
if the engine is overloaded, it cuts AC (see OBD2 scans for load factor (hills)
if the evap core freezes , most AC cut.
low freon. cut
too high? cut.

These are what a tech calls, AC permissives.
if the clutch is dead, we are all over them.

Saturn cuts off when trying to use the a/c

It could be more than one problem.
The cooling fan could be running because the temp sensor is sending the wrong signal to the computer.
The ac compressor or clutch could be bad causing a heavy load on the belt and the engine.
I would unplug the compressor clutch and see if the engine still bogs down with the ac engaged.
