Hi Leon, My name is***** will be glad to try to help. Check the crank sensor as a loss of engine speed signal to the ECM will not cause a no start, Also verify you have power and ground to the ECM and check all fuses and relays. If okay and the crank sensor is okay you could have a faulty ECM. Let me know

Yes it will. Cam and crank sensors will cause a no start.
