Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The crank sensor is part of the ignition system and will not cause a no crank condition. I see you mentioned a single click when trying to start it, which is usually caused by a bad starter.

Do you get a single solid click from the engine compartment when turning the key to the crank position?
