I suspect what has happened is the timing chain has jumped on you and it is now out of time. Unplugging the cam sensor allows the PCM to start the engine using just the crank sensor. Because it starts with the cam sensor unplugged, the PCM obviously doesn't like the timing signal that it is getting from the cam sensor so it fails to start the engine. The reason it doesn't like the cam signal is because the engine is out of time. HTH.
