MY CIVIC IS GIVING PROBLEM :Please Reply Your Opinion & Ideas

Hey guys hows it going, i want your OPINIONS or IDEAS on a problem i have with my civic 1999 4 dr sedan, everyting is STOCK.

THE PROBLEM:

While im dirving or at a stop light the car just SHUTS-OFF with no sound, i have narrowed it down to an electircal problem. The battery is new and working fine.

What happens before the car shuts off is that while driving the
KM needle will flicker up and down on its own. The problem was
happening once a week now its happening everyday and also
now its happening before i start my car.

It just shuts off simple, NO NOISE. One clue that has been happening lately is that my GAS needle has been going down on sharp turns even if the car has a FULL TANK, the needle will drop close to EMPTY and when I am back on a straight the needle will slowly rise again.

Also this could be my imagination but the problem happens more in WARM weather like TODAY, compared to COLDER days

I WILL APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENTS THANK YOU

Can you explain?? Is that the wrong way to do it and why? To make such a statement and back it up with nothing has no educational value to the original poster, or any of us for that matter.

i dont like unplugging electrical components when the car is running... let alone the battery. The current has to find ground somewhere.. and now you just took away its easiest path to ground.

isnt the wiring harness ground to the chasis at multiple points though? wouldn't that be a sufficient ground =p?

and what gauge of wire are those straps?

I'm not saying anything bad will happen, all I said was i'm not a fan of people doing it.
