Vickie Green, Just resetting will not fix your issue. You should consider having your car diagnosed and repaired right away as this can be a big safety issue if in traffic if car stalls out again. The Accords that body style had a problem with the electrical portion of the ignition switch going bad. One of the wires connections may loosen on the switch or fall off and cause the vehicle to randomly die as it is doing to you and green key light illuminate. there was/is a recall on this issue (last link) and some cars have had to have the part replaced more then once. Perhaps have a good local repair shop diagnose, they can also perhaps check test the main relay as some of these have also been known to fail(solder joint on internal board cracking), they can check all the wiring and connections as this could also cause issue(corroded/loose grounds). Having the car scanned may even help diagnose the issue, but not always. Some of the auto parts suppliers offer free code reading like Pepboys, Nappa, Advanced auto parts,etc and some of the guys are very knowledgeable and may have seen the issue often and put you on the right track. I have posted some informative links below for you to check out. Good luck. I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
