Unhappy 03 Accord Electrical/Engine Hesitates

Can anyone please help! While driving my dashboard lights flicker and sometime the radio goes out then the car loses power. I can hear clicks when this is happening. It's quick like 2 seconds the car usually does not stall. It has before but i can start it and drive home fine. I also noticed that when taking off my car studders a little and when taking my foot off the pedal it brakes by itself. No check engine light. It came on once for about 2 hours and O'Reilly's said its my ECU relay but the light is off now and mechanic can't duplicate the issue when he has the car?

Go back to O'Reillys and have them give you the actual code. The code starts with the letter P and has four numbers, like P1234.

I tried but the check engine light is not on now so there is not a code and they don't even remember me. Today it did it like 5x in a row. I hear clicks and then the dashboard lights up the radio goes out car hesitates for a split second and then poof everything is normal.

I had this exact problem with my o3 accord and it turned out my alternator was bad. Even though I had it replaced my dash still flickers when I'm on my break for long periods of time. Hence the whole reason I'm on this forum lol
