Q: no start on 1996 Pontiac Grand Am

my friend's car won't start. they have replaced the fuel pump. I noticed the anti-theft light is on constant. I checked codes with a mac pro reader. it came up with cam and crank sensor codes. Is this due to the pass-lock system. I can't hear the pump running when the key is on.

turn egnition switch to the on position, don't crank it, and wait ten minuets. If no go check dash cluster if not working replace and repeat 10 min deal. Good luck
