I had a fuel pump that would do that on my Prelude. It would run fine but then die and not restart for an hour or so. It was intermittant for like 6 months and drove me crazy.

What happens when the car shuts off? Can you restart it right away? Is it down on power? Does it run funny sometimes or is it an all or none type of thing?

Need little more info to help. btw if your car is running, you can take the battery out. Battery is for start only, or running things with the car off. Your alt. does the rest.

I had this problem with my NX, and the cure was running a new wire to the alternator, fuel pump, and all new grounds. I hope that helps with the little amount of information that you gave.

your atlernator may be on the way out, that sounds like what happened to me, eventually I had to wait longer between stall to restart until I got a new alt and problem was fixed.
