Default 1997 Honda Accord keeps shutting off while driving?

I have a 1997 Honda Accord lx 4cl and when driving it will completely shut off for so apparent reason. Replaced the Main Relay and its still shutting off...what else could it be??

It does Not bog out. It completely shuts off. Last time it shut off, the locks worked but nothing else...??

Have it diagnosed & repaired only by Honda.


?Quick lube shops competing for your business cave into pressure for bargain oil changes.

?To cut costs, they might buy single weight oil in bulk or use recycled oil. They use cheaper, less durable oil filters.

?Low-wage, inexperienced technicians sometimes make servicing mistakes when trying to work faster.?

[No diss to good, independent mechanics.]

. .


??independent mechanics complain they lack the proprietary tools and data to service many late-model cars?? some 2004 models and earlier.

They?r seeking a ?Right to Repair? law allowing them access to manufacturers? databases.

Wall St Journal, Feb, 2011.

. .


Toyota & Ford withhold Technical Service Bulletins from customers & govt. "Automakers can save money if owners don?t know about service campaigns that include extended warranties," consumer advocate Clarence Ditlow said.

Toyota alleged it wants to ?protect its intellectual property? by withholding the bulletins.

Ford alleged it wants to protect its customers from the risks of do-it-yourself repairs using info in the TSBs. But Ford sells the TSBs to commercial distributors like AllData who in turn resell them w/o restriction.

Mercedes refused to comment on its policy of releasing TSBs in their entirety to the public & govt.

If the warning lights do not come on when it dies, the ignition switch is failing. That nothing but the locks worked really raises my suspicion level for the ignition switch. See the recall about 3/4 of the way down the second source.
