I have a 2010 Honda Accord EXL with about 74,000 miles and I live in Southern California.
For the past 2 months, I've been experiencing intermittent electrical shut downs while driving:
Scenario 1: while driving, the audio will shut down briefly (<1 sec.) and turn itself back on
Scenario 2: while driving, the audio and engine will shut down briefly (<1 sec.) and turn themselves back on. Warning lights like the tire pressure light will flash red briefly; the triangle with exclamation mark in middle light will also flash; the RPM gauge will dip, the fuel gauge will dip quickly to empty before snapping back to the normal level.
The frequency of these events is random, last month I experienced them several times in a single day. After which, the car ran fine the next 3 weeks without any issues. This morning, I experienced both scenarios within an hour.
I know this is not a battery issue since these issues only occur while the car is running.
I'm still able to brake and the steering wheel still works.
Does anyone have any idea what's going on? Moreover, is it safe to drive?
