Default 2002 automatic Honda Civic Sedan LX shut off while driving?

ok this is a problem i started having about 4 days back already. First, my car would be in motion when all of a sudden it just shuts off, for like a second and turn on again like nothing happened, when the car turns on again the radio continues on playing and the lights on the dash turn on like if i just turned on the car but all this happend when i was driving at around 20mph, that happened to me like 4 times, i didnt thing it was anything serious, but now yesterday i was on my way to school and i was about to do a right turn on the intersection when the car does the same thing but this time the car got stiff, the steering wheel got stiff, the brakes get stiff and the only thing that turned back on was the dash lights and the radio again. now this has been happending all day yesterday, and today like right now. i usually happens when i do a right turn most of the time but now yesterday i told my dad to try it out and the car did the same thing but it was going straight. good thing there was no traffic behind. well i dont know wut it could be its pretty weird! Help me please! Why does my civic shut down and gets stiff?

Sounds like a power problem. Check the fuses are good, the connections clean and tight, and clean the battery terminals

Oh and it "gets stiff" (actually it gets heavy) because you loose power assistance for the steering and brakes.
