When I am driving my 1999 Accura Cl 3.0 it stops, I have to throw it on neural and restart it. This happens when I'm driving. I can only tell that this is happening because I can''t accelerate. What I mean is it doesn't give me any warning that this is happening, no noise no stalling. It's like when you run out of gas.

Same problem. Twice now I've gone to start my car and it won't start. After multiple attempts and gunning the gas it will finally start. I've taken it to Acura and they don't know what is wrong.

At times when I try to start my car it only has a small click sound, if I turn the wheel and move the gear shift I can get it to start.
I turn the key and car starts, and instantly dies, but if I turn the key very slowly
it will start and stay running, but it then can run until it decides to stall for no
reason, and repeat the process. I also here clicking sound inside glove-box area,
and then wonder if its a relay fuse, or could it be just the ignition switch

A couple times in the past few months it would drive fine then all of a sudden not start at all, no crank or turning over just click. Then I'd try again in a minute or so and it would start fine. Well now it won't start at all. Replaced the battery the cables the ignition switch fuse and still no starting it. Even tried all the other tricks, seems I need to replace the the faulty ignition switch!
