Yes, in fact, when the engine stalls, the dashlights
do come on even if the clutch is engaged and in gear. 
This actually happened to me a few times with the
clutch engaged.  All other times, the car stalled
immediately when I disengaged the clutch.  Obviously
whith the clutch engaged, the engine is still turning,
but the ignition quits.
I'm starting to think it is a TPS issue, I'll have to
get my multimeter out this weekend and do some
diagnostics.  Not sure what else could cause a problem
like this.  The trip computer does in fact go to
infinity without throttle, however.  Does the trip
computer get this info from the TPS?  If so, the TPS
must be working.  Any more ideas?  Thanks for the
input guys.
