Mein Auto: 1993 740i
93 740 - Ignition switch?? s.o.s!!

Hi...I have a 1993 740i that dies periodically..it seems like it's running out of gas (it's not) then everything shuts down..I'll let it sit for 3 minutes then it's fine. The weird thing is it will be fine for a few weeks or so...then do it every couple of days for a week...then it will be fine for a few more weeks...do it again one time...be fine for a month...etc...I took it to a mechanic in town who hooked it up to his computer and said my ignition switch is bad...his partner said that definitely wouldn't be the problem...i took it to another mechanic friend who works on Hondas and he called a friend who said it sounds like it might be the ignition switch...

any thoughts?
