If your check engine light comes on but doesn't always stay on and if it shuts off during stops I would check the cranshaft, and the crankshaft sensor

check the oxygen sensor too... had a similar issue and it wasn't installed properly and it was shorting out.... they hadn't put the harness on the wires so the wires were exposed and rubbing the coating off...

I have a 2017 Honda Civic and recently it has been turning on after being parked for minutes or hrs. I have to start it with a booster. It has been happening quite frequently for the last 3 wks. What could be the issue?
