What could cause the car to loose all power while driving?

Asked by Jul 24, 2015 at 04:04 PM about the 2003 Acura CL 3.2 Type-S FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Driving down the highway at 65 mph the radio stops and then the screen for the
navigation goes out and the gauges drop to zero. The car coasted the rest of the way to a
safe place. But this happened twice in the two days we had it. Any help is greatly
appreciated. Thank you!!
