Default Car cuts off without warning while driving

Need help. Car cuts off while driving and/or coming to a stop without warning itís like the car thinks Iím turning the key off so maybe the switch is the problem? Itís a 1995 civic with an ls swap. Canít seem to figure out the problem. It doesnít have any check engine lights.

You have described symptoms that are typical of an ignition switch/pigtail failure.

When it stalls out, don't touch the key until you check if the battery and oil warning lights come on. Normally they will come on whenever the key is on but the engine is not turning. If they are out but come back on when you jiggle the key, it's a bad ignition switch.

A lot more cost-effective to test first before replacing.
