    did you have the code pulled or a real diag??? codes only point you in a direction of a failure.
    the crank sensor is on the harmonic balancer in the front of the motor.
    i would look at all your connections starting with the battery cables.

    all connections seen good also before it stopped working the key sometimes wouldnt turn all the way off unless u moved the shifter back and forth in park now when u step on the brake pedal all power cuts off and the key will turn to the on position without pressing the break and when u turn the key to start the starter clicks and then all power shuts off
