Car turned off in third gear..wtf?

So i was driving home coming down my block getting ready to make a U turn, my car was in third gear as i was slowing down so i pushed the clutch in as i was coming to a stop in third gear i wasnt gonna down shift and as i was turning towards the curb to make a complete stop the car just turned off or stalled, and im almost 100% positive that i had the clutch in all the way. I took it around the block again to see if it would happen again and the car was fine and i did it the same exact way. Im curious as to why that happened. my battery light and other lights were on as if the car would have stalled but, this just boggled my mind, any advice on what could cause this helps, thanks

Re: Car turned off in third gear..wtf?

weird. I sorta had something similar happen to me too.

It was raining this weekend and while driving on the freeway at low rpms in 5th gear, the car jerked and my check engine light came on with my atts light briefly and then 2 minutes later it just died on the freeway. i tried to pop my clutch to start it but it wouldn't start. i turned the key and it started.

now this has happened at different speeds all at low rpms in different gears. I've had my car just shut off on my while driving. it's happend 5 times since saturday and i have no idea why.

this sounds like a worse problem then what has happened to me, if i were you i would bring it to a shop asap if you dont have an idea where its coming from. I just called and asked my friend whos a mechanic he said there can be a bunch of reasons why it happend but if it starts up dont worry too much. and one guy on prelude power said it could be the ignition switch but idk

What kind of intake do you have. You said it was raining, hopefully you didn't get water into your after market intake. (If you have one, cold air intake) That's not a good thing. Better check that out. Your CEL still on?

Re: Car turned off in third gear..wtf?

i have no codes, the lights only turned on cuz the car turned off ya know what i mean. i have a short ram intake and it doesn't appear that i have sucked any water into the engine. it's running fine. the car does have 153k on it. tonight when i get home from school i'm gonna ohm out the spark plug wires, check the distributor cap and rotor and double check the spark plugs. i suspect that the previous owner didn't take very good care of this car so i am forced to do all the maintenance on it. :(

My max did that when my MAF sensor went bad, though the prelude doesnt have a MAF it might have something similar???

nah man nothing like that has happend its happend i would say once so far. but i was told to get my ignition switch checked cuz im having a problem with that, i went to honda they told me the recall was done to my car so either the ignition switch went bad again or im having an electrical problem, im gonna wait to see what happens but ill definitely get whatever is wrong fixed.

thanks

My 89 CRX use to do the same thing. It was the aftermaket intake I purchased. It was fixed by resetting the computer.
