Q: engine cam problem on 2005 Suzuki Reno

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
The engine light came on while driving, took to dealer, he said it was a cam switch problem. What would be the approximate cost of this repair. He said we could drive it, but the car could 'quit' at any time. ??? any comments?

Sounds like you mean 'Camshaft Positon Sensor' (CMP) malfunction. The car may run with this problem but you need to address it. Your emissions will be up, your gas consumption will be down and the engine won't run right. It also won't last as long as it would if it were running right.
