Engine cut out mid drive

Hi everyone,

I have a 1995 Honda Prelude 2.2 vTEC and this morning when I was driving in 4th gear slowing down from about 50 as I approached roadworks the engine completely cut out.........the lights on the dashboard went out, the windscreen wipers stopped, the engine coasted to a stand-still.....basically it was as if I'd turned the engine off with the key. It started again first time and then drove me fine to work.
Does anybody have any idea what could have caused this? It was raining this morning and I had headlights, fans, radio, wipers on........could it be an alternator problem?

Thanks, Steven

whats ' up bro i read your problem make sure your alternator belt is good and tight ,and try to get it tested for chargeing ratings.check the batt terminals are tight and clean and not crusty also check your grounds . Take a look at your main relays and fuses in the engine bay and ,also if your have aftermarket alarm would cause totaled blackout .Take care . JOHN

Thanks guys, I appreciate that. I checked my battery after it happened and applied some terminal protector to positive and negative, but it looked clean and fine. WIll get the alternator checked out. Thanks.
