Whew, sounds high to me, but they make a 100 bucks an hour. I would check the price of a PCM for your vehicle, then research if they need to be programmed, either way you could save a bundle unplugging yours and plugging in a new one even if they just have to program it. (on most cars and trucks just the ECM needs to be programmed or the chip removed from the old and put in the new) look it up.

That price is way high! A PCM is about $250 (tops, rebuilt) plus $100 to flash (program) it to your vehicle, and another $100 labor. HTH. -Jim
