Hi Sheldon, I have exactly the same model and have a similar problem. The revs drop too low and cuts out. It's the idle control valve. If the battery has been disconnected then you need to re-train the ecu.

1. Turn the car on and let her idle for about 15 mins.
2. Drive as you would normally (no hitting v-tec) for about 20 mins.

If this doesn't work you can try cleaning the valve and then repeating the process.

Hope this helps

Tash
