Hi Tong,

I would say the broken belt has damaged the crank angle sensor wiring.

The car will not start without a crank angle sensor signal.

You will need to have the vehicle inspected for result of the belt damage.

I hope this helps.

the serpentine belt broke off but the timing belt has crack all around and had a rip after wen the serpentine belt broke
Expert:  Gary replied 9 months ago.

Ok, so the timing belt was damaged by the serpertine belt, is that correct?

Did the timing belt jump teeth as a result of this?
