Serveral times while driving car stalls. There is no telling as to when and where car' S engine will cutoff and how fast I might be going. Car has stalled when driving at speeds of 60mph. I lose power steering and I have to coast to come to a stop. No battery light or any other lights display on the dash. Once car is put back into park the car starts with no problem. This is a very serious safety issue and the Honda dealership continues to guess as to what the problem may be. They told me that my keychain is the problem and that I should just use the ignition key by itself. I just don't want to get involved in a serious accident which can cost my life or anyone else's.
