I have a 2002 Audi A4 that while sitting at a stop light

I have a 2002 Audi A4 that while sitting at a stop light died and threw about 13 codes all at once. Most of them are camshaft sensor codes on both banks and multiple misfire. Im sure all the sensors did not go out all at once, and im wondering what would cause all these codes to be set . The car will crank but will not start. the cranking sounds different as well , as if it has a weak battery, but i know the battery is ok. so what is the problem. Audi experience of this specific repair type is appreciated, i am on a time limit and prefer not to have someone guess at it please.
