Default 2003 Turbo shuts off

I've been having the problem for 2 weeks, had it to a shop, while driving it will shut off, no missing, just shuts down, after about an hour will start and run ok, went to pick grandkids up for fishing, went in their house to get them came out started up and shut down and wouldn't start, same thing, I have been leaning toward the computer, as the possible problem, the car has 87000 miles. I've been thinking about having the PCM reflashed at the dealership or buy a refurbished one ? any input would be appreciated

What has been done to try and fix the problem so far?


Did you fix this problem last year or is it related?

The garage tried a crank sensor, and a new connector, for that. they showed me the listing on their computer and checked voltages , their is no check engine light, no codes, when it shuts off I can hear the fuel pump when I turn the key, I have changed the plugs, idle air control valve and the oil pressure switch, the car turns over very well, just acts like no spark or gas, let it sit for a while and starts up, never know how long it will run

Does this car have a main relay? Older ('90s) Honda Accords could be counted on to do this as they aged.

I would suggest you check the ASD relay before looking to the PCM. The ASD (Auto Shut Down) relay shuts off the fuel injectors and the coil. Some members have gotten lucky just removing the ASD relay and plugging it back in making a good connection and if that doesn't do it check the ASD relay itself.

I would verify that information before doing any swapping. The only suggestions I am aware of is swapping the starter relay with the horn relay but not the ASD relay. Do verify it to keep from damaging more components.

Post if swapping the ASD relay works. Part of the relay after it gets hot might be shutting off the injectors and coil.
