HONDA ACCORD IGNITION SWITCH PROBLEM

1998 Honda Accord • 79,000 miles

The car stalls while I am driving. It takes approx. 5 mins to start gain. The longest has been half an hour. There is also sometimes the smell of gas immediately after the car has been driven

Do you have a check engine light? If so, diagnose from there. Have that trouble code checked out and it will direct you in the proper direction. These cars sometimes have problems with the main relay going bad as well as the ignition switch.

The main relay is an easy fix and cheap. The ignition switch is a bit more expensive and time consuming but it could be the problem as well.

Good luck and feel free to donate if these help you! ; )

There is a chance there is recall on the ignition switch with your car as well-
