2005 honda civic ex automatic stalled at 40 mph

I was driving my 2005 honda civic ex automatic (50,000 miles) at about 40 mph and everything shut down. Speedometer went to zero while moving, Tach at zero, radio went out,...etc. Started back up once I stopped. What could be the cause of this?

    Have you checked your fuel pressure? Failing fuel pumps often act that way, especially under a load, like going up a significant hill. While failing, they will work, then not, then work, then quit. Of course, there are other things it could be.

Check the main fuses under the hood. There are several large ones there. A loose connection on one of them could have caused the sudden, complete electrical failure you described. If it is a loose connection, it would certainly explain why it "came back to life" by itself.

Also, might you possibly have any sort of aftermarket security system that has an immobilizer feature on it? While I wouldn't expect this to disable the entire car including the radio, if it were incorrectly installed I suppose it could.

I hope this help. Good luck!

1998 Honda Civic relearn idle


Just drive the car as you normally would and the CPU will automaticly relearn your driving habits and be fine. It may stall the first few miles till it learns you want it to continue to drive it. Just avoid heavy traffic areas the first few miles. I hope this helps you out.

Can i flat tow or dinghy tow an 85 civic automatic ?


if at all possible tow it on a flat bed so that all wheels are off the ground, if this is not possible, tow it with the drive wheels off the ground, if its front wheel drive tow with front off the ground, if its rear wheel tow with rear off the ground, if none of these options are possible, dont pull the car further than 50 miles and try not to tow it faster than 40 mph as this can possible cause transmission problems

If your not over miles then it should be covered under warranty, take it to the dealer for inspection. they have standard 3 year 36,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty... 3 years 50,000 miles on power train...
