So I was driving along the other day, and my car just up and died.
Data:
1993 civic dx with dx 5sp tranny and d16z6 engine(fresh)
the engine will go through it's 'stall' procedure; check engine light, then all the dash lights come on because the engine is off.
the car will not fire if the key is turned until the ignition is set all the way to 'off' and then back to 'start', but if it is, it will start no problem.
this failure happens randomly and without warning. engine can be cold OR hot.
manual ignition timing is dead on honda spec and the manual timing is perfect. battery terminal connections are minty fresh and tight. all engine harness connections are cleaned and contact-greased. I have inspected the main relay, and the solder appears to be in good condition. the car runs perfectly and vtec engages smoothly when it should, when the car isn't turning itself off.

So, I'm thinking either the main relay, or an ignition thing in the dizzy. any 2 cents is welcome and much appreciated.
