The crankcase position sensor and brakelight switch were diagnosed and replaced and I received a bill for 611.00 dollars. Also a relay switch which cost 27 dollars was replaced. The parts totaled 187.00 dollars and labor was 403.00. Was as I over charged?

    My guide says crankshaft sensor $125, .6 hour to replace, .4 hour perhaps to test, not sure what relay switch was replaced so can't comment, brake light switch about $20, .6 hour to fit add time to test. Diagnosing the no start I can't comment on whether they knew that car well or whether your car had an intermittent or hard problem to find.
