Wires can short out from oil or water leaking onto them. replace the wire. one from autozone or from the acura dealership is best.

    replace the wire, yes. but now i suspect you may have a voltage regulator malfunction. i'd recommend having the alternator tested, you might have too many volts/amps.

How do you test the PCM module on a 1996 ford ranger 3

Test it for what ? Check engine light on ? Vehicle won't start ? There are videos on youtube ! You would need to know basic electrical testing procedures . You would need wiring diagrams that show what all the wires are for . And realize that beside the main B+ voltage supply's and chassis grounds there are sensor power and grounds which only have a 5 volt reference voltage. You wouldn't won't to short a wrong circuit frying the computer . ECM Inputs and Outputs Diagnosis

My heater control module keeps going out!

Most electrical problems are caused by bad grounds. Since your battery is grounded to your engine, make sure your engine is grounded to your chassis. I have seen battery terminals replaced and the small ground wire to the chassis was not connected back.

I have a 91 integra gs 5spd yesterday when i was driving it after i stopped at a light all of a sudden without any warning it just shut off like if i shiftd wrong but i tried starting it back and it did...

check your timing. i know it's kind of out there but it's a shot. also, check the plug wires and see if you have spark, if not check the 12 volts to the coil, if there is no power to the coil, there must be a blown fuse. check them as well. Use process of elimination. 12volts on coil-no start...maybe fuel related...and so forth and so on. like i said eliminate all varaibles.

Reading the other comments you will need to confirm power into the coil.Might also be worth checking your timing mark on bottom pulley against TDC on No1 piston and checking against rotor position that it points to No1 lead.Check your wiring for loose or broken wires into coil-module-distributer.

I have a 91 integra Gs 5spd suddenly shut off while driving

cranking over is a good thing

does the 1991 have a crank angle sensor
chase back to coil if no spark at the plugs

if EFI could be fuel pump or fuel delivery at the injectors

check if the efi has a designated fuse in the engine bay cluster

95 Acura Integra starting problem

This happened to me on a 95 Integra GSR and the entire starter did not need to be replaced, just the solenoid pieces. They get old and worn down and the plunger no longer makes a good connection with them, hence the "click". Replace the solenoid panels and sand the plunger and your good as new. You can find instructions for this on the net, just do a search for it.
