Default Car Troubles 1991 Honda accord staying started.?

So i get in my car an i try and start the car; the following steps include.... clutch down and then start the car. so i turn the key till it wont tun no more an let go of the key but, when i let go of the key the car turns off. i have gotten it to start but while i will be driving the car will turn off on me. i know the car will turn off before it actually does because my RPM and MPH needles will drop to zero then it will turn off

You most likely need a new ignition switch. As a last ditch effort before you buy one buy a can of qd electronics cleaner and spray it down good but I doubt it will help.

That sure sounds like the ignition switch. If the warning lights don't come on but headlights stay on when it fails that is a solid diagnosis. If the headlights go off also there is a more fundamental electrical problem, and if the warning lights come on when the engine dies it is not the ignition switch.

See the first source for the whole run-down.
