SRS systems are expensive depending on what's wrong. SRS stands for secondary restraint system and simply means airbags. Your '95 could have two air bags, one for the driver and one for the passenger. Changing out the airbags is not dificult though you are working with explosive devices and certain precautions must be adhered to. If you aren't technically minded, have it done for you. If you are technically minded and think you are savvy enough to do it without a manual and schematics, get someone to do it for you! If you deploy an airbag without being properly seated in front of it and the airbag itself properly mounted, you are risking death. In short, you better know what you are doing.The SRS computer is another piece that's not to difficult to R&R but it too requires you observe certain precautions or you could deploy the airbags. Get a manual and follow it only after you fully understand it.The sensors on the vehicle could deploy the airbags as well but at least you wouldn't be in harms way when they went off.Of course all your work would be complete before you plugged in the new airbags which demands you check the circuit from the SRS computer to see if a detonate signal exists and a shorting wire installed before you plug in the airbag insures stray voltages such as static from your clothes doesn't set it off when you connect the connector. After the connector is plugged in the shorting wire is removed and you are fully in service.Sounds like fun eh?The airbags are explosive devices and are not readily available to the general public though I have found them for sale. Shipping them would be hazardous as well so I think the airbag itself may be an imposing problem.The SRS computer is readily available from junk yards, the internet, and probably on-line auctions easy enough. Sensors too in all likelyhood. Connecting it all up and KNOWING the system works so you are protected in a crash? You can only get that warranty by having it done professionally and it certainly isn't going to be cheap.We've driven for years without airbags and newer model cars are starting to come with the option to turn the darn things off if you want to. I don't think you are required to make it work to legally drive the car in America.Good luck!
