What’s Wrong With My Car?November 8th, 2010 by ed friedrich
My 1996 Accord is freaking me out lately. I’ll be driving along and it’ll just go dead. The first two times I was on the highway and it was just a hiccup and went right back to normal after a second. The next two times I was on country roads and it died and I had to pull over. After a few seconds, it started right up like normal and ran fine. It seems to happen in the first few miles of a trip, and after it happens, it’s fine thereafter.
Some people told me they think it’s the ignition switch. They said to look at the dash lights. If they go out, that’s the giveaway. I didn’t notice if they do or not.
