Question about 2003 Honda Accord

Car stalls while I'm driving it... even on the highway

I will be driving 60 mph and the car will just stall on me. It's pretty scary. I can usually get it started again, but this is a nightmare. we bought the car from an auction and it has had a check engine light on since the 3rd day we got it. now it has a maintenance required and I just had an oil change. I also get the lights on the dash board dimming and brightening... please help

    A weak alternator would be unable to keep the battery charged. Which might explain the stalling except the poster claims he can get the car restarted. This would indicate the battery has a good charge, and that the alternator is not the issue.

    You'll need to pull the DTC codes from the computer using a scan tool to help troubleshoot the issue.

Stalls while driving


Can you be more specific does it happen only on the highway what is the speed is it when accelerating does it happen on other roads, does it start right up after stalling as it seems unlikely that it would just be the highway in order to even try and figure it out more information is required

Stalling while driving


I've seen this problem before in other cars. Your electric fuel pump is cavitating and instead of putting just fuel into your fuel line it is putting in an air fuel mix. It will only get worse. To be sure check your fuel line pressure. I'm sure you will find it low. If it is replace the fuel pump.

Vam stalling


there are too many reasons...

it could be fuel pump,, it could be ignition coil overheating, it could be the computer itself...

you need two things for the engine to run,

1 is gas
2nd is ignition,,

with these two misfiring or your loosing one of them, it will stall...

i hope i was able to give you some thoughts....
