Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Honda Odyssey Automatic 120000 miles
I have already posted a question and received an answer. Please find it below. But would like to get some clarification
I am little confused here. Can you please help me to understand the problem correctly? So that I can take the right action. If the ignition switch is faulty why I have this problem only in the after noons (Not in the morning at all) and why it getting stalled exactly in the initial 3-5 minutes of the drive. As I mentioned earlier every time I am able to restart after 20 seconds and most of the time there won't be any further issue in the rest of the drive.
My confusion is If the ignition switch is faulty why does it stall with in the first 3-5 minutes instead of the start itself and how does I am able to restart every time - almost 20 seconds after the stall and running fine again?
Could you please explain? Could you please confirm that the ignition switch is the only culprit? So that I can go ahead and get it replaced.

Thank you for the donation.
You mentioned the dash lights not showing when engine stalled.
If that is the case, you have a faulty ignition switch.

Engine Mechanical problem
1990 Honda Odyssey Automatic 120000 miles
My 99 Honda Odyssey stalls while driving (May be twice or thrice a week). Its an intermittent problem.
If the engine getting stall it will happen with in the first 2-5 minutes of the drive and all the lights in the dash will turn off
If I try will get start with in another 15 - 20 seconds and the most of the time there won’t be any issues in rest of the drive. Very rare I have noticed that the engine gets stalled when I am on a red signal light also.
Frequency of this issue is very high in summer especially in evening hours when the out side temp is high. In the morning hours I don’t have any problems and in winter too. I suspect there is some thing going wrong with the fuel system when the out side is warm. Mechanic is unable to identify the root cause of the issue.
My ABS light is on for a long time. Is it causing this trouble?
As per the technical expert opinion I have already changed the Main Relay (Fuel Relay) but it didn’t do any help. The next option given to me is to change the fuel cut off relay. That I haven’t done yet.
Any idea what could be causing the engine stall? Does the fuel cut off relay replacement will do any help? Or is there any other solution?
I appreciate your help.
have the same problem?
