nope they made the right diagnose but if the sensor malfunctions it should opup with an engine warning light = there is a fault code that will tell you exactly how bad it is either malfunction (intermittent) or dead ( no signal)

intermittent means it might not need to be exchanged (a clean or re-wire could be needed)

no signal means you'll have to exchange it for a new one
