Driving a 2000 Honda Accord EX w/ about 90,000 miles.
I started having trouble a few months ago with my SRS light coming on
and staying on. My mechanic re-set it once, but after a week or so it

Then, about 2 weeks ago my background lights started flickering, along
with my headlights. We immediately thought alternator, so we took it to

come back on after the car started gaining speed. The fan was also
blowing in time to the rhythm of the flicker (very strange)!
Book says it the alternator??
Anyone got ideas.
