My 1998 Acira RL just shut off while entering the garage. The engine shut off, and the battery and engine lights remained on. An attempt to restart the car without taking the key out of the ignition did not work (no sound). Taking the key out of the ignition and restarting it worked like normal.
Occasionally the car makes a loud sound right after starting, which resembled a cross between a honk and a grinding sound. I’m not sure if this is related.
Any idea on the source of this issue would be appreciated. I would rather the car not stop mid-drive on a busy street or the highway.
