Honda Accord


Asked by Feb 27, 2019 at 10:13 AM about the 1998 Honda Accord DX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 98 Honda Accord is dying while
I’m driving it, at  many different
speeds, and various time intervals.
Dies smoothly, no sputter, no noise.
People in my passenger seat don’t
even realize the car has died. It starts
right back up, sometimes takes right
off, sometimes it starts and dies
immediately, and it may take six or
seven times before it will keep

1 Answer


Sounds like that twenty year old ignition switch has worn out. Replace it.
