The same shop checked the light and repaired and now it has come on for the 3rd time after just a few days of last repair. Am I being ripped off?

    It definitely does not look good for the repair shop.Sometimes there are subsequent failures when repairing a vehicle,meaning when you fix one problem another problem that was there before can show it's ugly face only after you have fixed the first thing.But 3 times does not sound right.

    Light on for the same thing? Are they charging you for every time they check it? What was or is the trouble with the vehicle?

    You can get a free scan test at AutoZone then post the results so we can advise before you take it to the shop.
    May be something you can fix!
