Angry Are they 'milking' me!!!

I have a 2001 ML320....101,000 miles, The car intermitently had no crank, no start problems for about a year.
The dealer replaced the aam module...under the fuse box. costs...$900
When i picked it up from the dealer, after driving about 10 miles, the car started to brake by it self. this has never happned before. (I have had the car for about 3 years )Took it back to the dealer. They diagnosed a faulty yaw rate sensor...cost will be almost $1000.
now really pissed off. I argued with them that they probably messed something up during the aam/fuse box repair but they insisted that it's not realated.

Do you guys think it's related.

Shit happens, but what are the odds of it happen at the very moment you take the truck to a mechanic?
Had similar issue taking my Ford for a recall couple weeks ago. They added wire with a fuse to the brake switch and on my way home the turbo didn't perform. That was visible on freeway driving and not noticeable in the street traffic.
I inspected the engine bay and found disconnected vacuum tubing at turbo. Now on big truck distance from the area where they put new wire to the tubing is almost 3 feet.
What are the chances that could happen coincidentally?
Good luck finding a mechanic who will admit his screw up. Take the truck to indy for second opinion.

Taking what you said at full value, it seems pretty odd that car developed a new problem while they had it. I would lean toward the module they installed being defective. They should rule that possibility out before trying other possibilities IMO
