Does it always restart? Does the radio shut off too?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
it always restarts. I will have to ask my daughter about the radio. I will get back to you on that.

She took it out last night. I will ask her when she wakes up.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Ok, the radio does not turn off when this happens.
Mechanic for Honda: Dan, Technician replied 8 months ago

Does it always restart right away? Or does it need to cool down sometimes first? Does it run fine after it stalls the first time or keep stalling every half mile?

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Most of the time it starts back up right away. There have been times where it has not, and she had people push it into a parking lot right off the road she stalls on. She kept trying to restart it, but it had to cool down first. That was when she had been able to drive farther before it stalled out. It runs fine after it stalls and has to be restarted.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are quite a few things that could be causing the engine to die and it will require some testing to determine exactly what is going on. It may be losing spark, fuel, it's possible that the issue is with the engine controller itself.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to use a scan tool or code reader to see if any fault codes are setting when this happens. Have you checked for codes?

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Would that make the check engine light come on? There is no check engine light on. I have not taken it for any testing or code reads.
Mechanic for Honda: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

You can't assume there are no fault codes setting because the engine light is not on. The first step in diagnosing the problem is to check for fault codes. If there are truly none stored then the next step will be to monitor fuel pressure when it dies, a scan tool may be needed to monitor data to begin testing at the time it dies.

Ok, I will have it scanned tomorrow and report back. Would it be the same test that Auto Zone offers free of charge?
Mechanic for Honda: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

Autozone will read fault codes with a generic OBDII code reader but they don't perform any actual testing.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
