If the shop said the timing belt has jumped or broken that is why the vehicle will not start. Both of those codes are related to the timing. That is the first thing that you will need to check, and do not crank the vehicle over anymore until you are sure that it is on time. This will require that you remove the top timing cover, and turn the engine over by hand until the large white mark on the crankshaft pulley is lined up with the TDC mark on the lower timing cover. When it is lined up, the camshaft pulley should have the mark UP facing up, and the two groves in the pulley lined up with the top of the cylinder head. If this is not the case, the engine is off time and the timing belt will need to be replaced and the engine set on time. Then you can try to start it and see if there is any internal damage that occurred from the engine jumping off time.
