Car would not start, turned over and over and over, but never started. After 2 days in the garage the mechanic got a code for crank sensor. The car started over and over for the mechanic except around 4:00 p.m. He requested a different ignition key and it started. Does it need a crank sensor?
What is the cost of a crank sensor. How long does it take to repair? on 1999 Cadillac Catera

Without being able to test the sensor its hard for me to say its bad. The labor to replace the sensor is just under 1.5 hours according to my labor guide and the part is approx $50.
