it dies at random

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1997 Honda civic coupe that will die just like if someone turned off the ignition. even while driving down the road it does this. I can so far just turn the key andit starts back up. Anyone else have this problem? If so what did you do to fix it?

Check you battery cables. I have seen cables become so loose, that the car will just die. Your fuel pump may be starting to die on you also. If your car dies and cranks over but will not fire, it will mean that your fuel pump has failed. Do you have any check engine lights on?

had the same problem with my 02 saturn and 07 accord. changed the battery didn't have the problem again. How old is your battery?
