Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are quite a few things that could be causing a lack of spark. If the no start condition started as a result of replacing the crank sensor though there is a good chance that the problem is directly related to that repair. It's possible that the sensor isn't fully installed, there may be a wiring or connection issue, and you may have gotten a bad replacement sensor.

Where did the sensor come from?
Does a scan tool communicate with the engine controller?
