what is it doing? does it crank over? do you have spark?

The car will run with out a cam sensor, it will be hard to start but will run. Look more at the Ignition module or Crank Sensor / Harmonic ballancer. I'd lean more on the ignition module they are a common problem. Ask Tyler and he will tell you, I know these engines in and out.

Further to your no start. It is common for the Crankshaft position sensor to give a camshaft fault code, so I might try that.
