1999 Honda Accord Stalling

Yesterday, while driving, my car stalled and the maintenance light started flashing. I was able to pull over and restart (after a few attempts)and it ran just fine for the rest of the day. I’ve had a few “hesitations” during the past month while driving, but the car never stalled completely. Help!! Many thanks!!

Get the error code(s) read from the computer. Some places, like AutoZone, do this for free.
Post the code(s) here. They look like P0123.

Thanks for your reply. I already took the car to AutoZone. The reading showed “No Codes”. Any further thoughts?

My first guess is the fuel pump relay, located under the dash. Not a bad idea to replace or repair as PM if it’s 10 years old. This is a common problem with fuel injected Hondas.

Many thanks for your suggestion. I will pursue that and let you know the results.
