HONDA HAS A TWO PART IGNITION SWITCH.THE CYLINDER PART AND THE ELECTICAL PART ON THE BACK OF THE LOCK CYLINDER.IT MAY BE THE ELECRICAL PART SHORTING OUT......ALSO CHECK YOUR BATTERY CABLES AND CHARGING SYSTEM....GOOD LUCK

My best educated guess would be the alternator. I think Auto Zone will check it for FREE. You don't have to buy one from them to get them to check it. Good Luck
