Honda Civis loses power and stalls. Engine warning lights come on

HONDA civic diesel, 1700 cc. 2003 model. After stalling will not restart immediately and when it does engine management and ignition curly light stays on. Eventually restarts but lights remain on. Has been reset by Honda only to fail again after a day or so. NO noticeable loss of power once it has restarted. Honda say thay need to check the engine after stalling abd before it restarts. Any ideas?

    1994 honda accord stalls randomly and wont start up until you let it rest for a few minutes. Dash lights don't work and speedometer only works when it wants to.

    Hi there
    This is a difficult one, especially given you have taken the car to a Honda Dealer.
    It could be a number of things but I need to ask did this problem happen immediately or has it worsened over a period of time?
    Has the problem occurred immediately after filling-up with fuel - I'm thinking that you might have a bad tank of fuel? I'm guessing that everything was fine after the Honda Dealer reset things and so if the problem appeared immediately say after a couple of days, it's saying to me that there's probably an electrical related problem. Why not answer some of my questions and we take it from there. Best regards, Scottech.

SOURCE: check engine light and lost of power

This sounds a lot like a bad TDC (Top Dead Center) sensor. Of the many sensors on this model vehicle, the TDC sensor failure is common and is one of the few sensor failures that will disable your vehicle.

2003 honda civic lx will start but no power trying to drive down driveway and antitheft light is on


that's a good one,
is engine RPM above or below, 2000 RPM in the A/T Drive selected
if cant get there, weak engine
if goes way highter, that is transmission slip.

the RPM is key
in the FSM see page on A/T for transmission stall test
it takes 1min, to setup, pass or fail (test is 15sec. max , never more. )

If a Honda is not producing enough amps it could cause it to stall but the battery should die if its the alternator. Sounds like the coil or distibutor.

Your vehicle may be part of a 2002 honda/acura recall. Faulty ignition switch!! Typical symptoms are: Random stalls, hard start, no spark, power loss (symptoms progress in hotter weather). When the vehicle stalls/shuts off while in motion, usually the speedometer drops to "0" while in motion. Some warning light not lit when ignition is set to "on" (chk engine/ABS/Brake etc.). Call your local dealer with your VIN# on hand and check if your vehicle is part of the recall. Refer to faulty ignition switches, affected years (1998-2002 models), accords/preludes/pilot/Odyssey/Civic/CR-V and various Acura models.

Engine stalls when driving & loses power


You have to reset your computer. In the engine compartment, left side on the strut well, is a black fuse box. You must remove the 10 amp hazard fuse for ten (10) seconds and then reinstall. That should make your CHECK ENGINE light go out. You do need to ascertain why it's coming on though.

2003 civic intermittent stall


I think you may have either a battery cable issue or more likely a ignition switch problem, most Japanese cars use the same design switch and I have seen the issue on other cars.
