Dan always try to sell us more than we need in a car. Then he 'padded' the Bill by more than $200.00 ! When I questioned him he said he had miscalculated.

The service of the staff, in every aptitude, went above and beyond my expectations! They were very patient and I really felt like I was being heard in describing the situation with my car. They were very up front with the extent of work and pricing in the quote I requested and the prices did not change from what was stated in the quote. Their estimated time frame on completion of the repairs was spot on and they were very thorough in explaining what repairs were critical, moderate and not a problem at the time of repairs.

We were on vacation when the work was done. Litters kept the car safe and at no extra charge until we could pick it up

The shop quoted me $900.00 for work that on a previous visit was quoted at $480.00. Had another quote for $450.00, Got the work done at a dealer for $440.00. Was a repeat customer with both family vehicles. Sent family and friends there. Now I warn them that they may over pay. Will not go back.

Used to be where it was personal service, now as they grow, it seems it's all about making money - I had a car reserved for the day of my service & at 5:30 the night before, they called & said no car. How do you do that & expect to keep me as a customer??

The first thing to try is a new battery in the remote key FOB. If problem continues, then a Mercedes compatible scan tool will be needed to retrieve trouble codes, retrieve security module data, and start the diagnostic process.
Where exactly is it located?
It looks as if the timing belt has to come off to replace the sensor. The real question is why do you think you need a sensor? What are the symptoms?
