5TH gen had a Honda recall on the ignition switches, if you havn't had it done you can book into the dealers for a new ignition switch fitted for free, under a safety recall because they kept cutting out.

There is one solid flash when I start it and 4 flashes after it stalls and when I shout the car off. When It stalls it is like I just turned the key back.... but didn't
