the parts are $198 each and there are two of them. you may
want to get a second opinion from a good Japanese specialty
shop, especially if the estimate was done by the dealer.
and no, you cannot bypass this sensor. fix it or park it.

Thank you for the reply.I've done dealer and private repair estimates both came in around$1,100+/-, one repair shop said they could do it for around $650. Big gap made me suspecious. Am I hurting anything by driving with it on? The car has around 220,000 miles and is running fine/good condition except for this issue.
