A bad CPS shouldn't cause car not to run. Look for other wires disconnected.


Is or was the check engine light on ?

I would get the code or codes reed that would eliminate a lot of guessing on why it will not start but if I was to guess I would say it is the camshaft sensor that needs to be replaced.
