Serious advice needed ladies and gents.


I've had my Accord for 5 years now and it's been a pleasure driving and owning, a few problems here and there but hey ho.


Anyway, dreaded SRS light is on, in truth has been on for a while my local trusted garage has had a look read the codes and resett the system only for it to come back on a day or so later they've done this a couple of times now and checked wiring etc.


I've now got a slipping clutch as well, it's ok as long as I don't try any hard acceleration.


Now given the fact of the age of the car I didn't pay out a lot  for it in the first place do I get the work done?


So if possible I need advice on potential costs for the jobs if anyone has had similar work done etc. I don't really want to get rid f her but need a reliable car.


Thanks in advance

Why don't you ask your local garage who you appear to trust?

The clutch will probably cost about £350, I paid that much for mine last time I had it done. In terms of the SRS light, I had mine reset and it hasn’t come back on so I don’t know if you have a deeper issue. A fault reader should help though.

if they dont have proper diagnostic just resetting is not good enough for srs as for clutch will be around £300 parts and similair labour.

hope that helps post back and let us know so that others can benefit from the information
