intermitent issues

My 97 5 speed is sometimes having trouble staying on while driving/idling. It cranks no problems at all. When the engine dies on its own, the lights on the dash all turn off until about 3-5 seconds after it originally died, then they turn back on by themselves. I havea check engine light for the knock sensor, which I believe is caused by oil leaking into my distributor. I'm thinking this has something to do with an electrical issue. Battery terminals/grounds all appear to be fine. Does anyone have any ideas at all? This is my only car an I need to get to work. ANY help would be awesome!! Thanks!

Re: intermitent issues

I have had it done. I checked that a few months ago when I was having starting issues. My bad for not mentioning this in first post. I did google the problem an I found on one site that Honda actually issued 2 separate recalls for that problem, once in 2002 an again in 2005, apparently. But Honda never told me about this when I spoke with them before, so I wouldn't really know.

Re: intermitent issues

Sounds like an ignition on ground issue but i couldn't be able to tell for sure.

Betting on worn out points in the ignition switch.
