Crankshaft position sensor is not the only cause leading to no- start condition. Check the obvious, like battery and starter, etc. But the flywheel has to be in a certain spot/position on the crankshaft, you can't just install the sensors in any random particular way. Make sure the flywheel is lined up to the dowel pin on the crankshaft, if the crank sensor gets incorrect information as to where top dead center is,the ECU won't allow the injecots or coils to fire.
