    Are you getting the computer malfunc light, if yes you need to go to honda workshop. if not it is something related to fuel ... hope there is enough fuel in tank ..... check fuzes also incl those in engine compartment .... lastly it could be a loose wire like wires on ignition coil or some wire is making positive neutral as the car moves. can't help more just some guesses here .... best of luck

    ^^
    Im in the twin cities

    But your guesses were pretty interesting, Ill remember them! Thanks.

    The real problem: After a mechanic was called, he inspected and said the fuel pump is out of order and needs to be replaced. He brought it from Honda and installed it and the car is once again on the go!
    Starting is fantastic and pick is awesome.

    But the thing that puzzles me is that how can the car SUDDENLY give up. There should have been some jolting or hiccuping or somthing- it cant just die...

    I wasnt there so I couldnt check, but I think that the fuel pump cable got disengaged and disconnected so it wasnt able to send fuel to the engine. Im gonna try to put the old pump back and see if it starts.

    I have changed this part only once at 65,000km when the car was 3.8 years old. Now its 5.4 years old at 98,000km.
