Default Accord 2001 wont start and stalls

Hi Guys
Need some advise please.My car does not start especially when cold. The engine management light and the green key light does not come on but when it does the car starts fine and drive. It also cust out whilst driving.
What I have done so far:
Changed main relay- no change
changed ignition switch- no change
changed battery- no change
got all connect uner dash checked for loose connections- no problems
Checked the engine management system. it records the following faults
A friend of mine told me that all three of the above still indicates ignition switch issue? is this correct.
My auto box is fine changes through the gears just fine no issue. Surely these faults cannot cause the car to stall and not start? Please advise

Those codes are all dealing with a transmission problem. The 98-02 accords had a lot of transmission failures, and your may be one of them.

I am not sure about how the key light and engine management light work. I am guessing that it has to do with the immobilizer system, but I have never had to troubleshoot one.

The transmission is perfect in my opinion. No knock, changes through all gears smoothly.

I cleared the codes two days ago and have checked this morning. No codes left in ECU. I have driven the car for a few miles. Will see if engine management light comes on

Are there any checks I can do to deduce if it is the immobiliser?

Thanks for your time
