Default 1997 Honda Civic DX intermittent stall, No code(s) displayed

97 civic dx when driving along it just stalls, like a switch was
thrown and it just dies. If I try to turn it over it will restart for
a moment but then dies again, sometimes it'll run for a min sometimes
for a couple but never more than 5minutes after it has stalled. When
the car is cold it starts and drives without issue.

No Code is displayed or shown, the CEL does NOT come on and there are
no codes stored.

I'm thinking it's the Main Relay but... It's a blistering 37deg F here
in Oregon at the moment! Still a bad relay?

it's not putting out a code 16 which I would expect either...


Anyone have any idea?

thanks for the imput!

check the ignition switch - this vehicle was subject to the great
ignition switch recall.

in future, remove all the junk off your key ring, and make sure the key
id turned fully back to "run" after "start".

[code 16 is for obd0 vehicles. this is obdII]

Your recall notice is here:

Like Jim said. I'd add that you should probably use LockEase to baptize
all five of the locks on a '97. It will make them all work like new and
might solve part of your ignition switch problem.

Much appreciated, I'll get the switch replaced.

that may help defer onset on a new switch, but once the electrical
contacts are burned out, it's unlikely to help much.
