Default 1991 honda accord se, not starting

was driving along fine then lost all power to lights and such then when i
turned off car, it would not restart. i got it jumped, everything was as
normal, 5 minutes later, same thing happened. to narrow it down for me
could it possibly just be the alternator or are we talking the main relay
switch and if it is the relay, what is the rough price and can it be done
by someone that doesn't know much about cars like myself rather then
paying a mechanic.

----------------------------------

If it loses all power, it's usually the ignition switch. They recalled
about a billion of them. Look at tegger.com for more about the recall.
Checked your battery terminals lately?

haven;t cleaned the cables yet, going to do that in the early am, just
frustrated. would the ignition switch cause the car to lose all electric
power then not start until jumped then act all fine again and then relose
electric power and so on? how much is the ignition switch and could i
replce it myself knowing nothing about cars?

Probably ignition switch. I have same car and replaced about 3 years
ago. Really surprised me too, car just dead and acted like a mind of
it's own. New ignition switch in steering column - No Problems.
