corsa 55 plate 1lte 3 cilinder, good runner but want to know if this burning smell (plastic/rubber) means garage job, is it costly

Sounds like an electrical issue, aka burning wire. Yes, if you don't know what your doing, you'll need to have a mechanic diagnose it. He will have to locate the area and diagnose the issue as to why the wires melted. Electrical issues are labor intensive.
