Ok to get a P0321 then that's an issue with the crank speed signal into the ECU.
if the crank sensor is faulty then it will never start as the ECU isn't opening the fuel injectors, if the injectors are working you can hear them click - its difficult to hear them with background noise so use a long screwdriver like a stethoscope, placing the handle end in your ear and the metal tip against the body of the injector whilst your assistant turns the engine over.
If you can't hear anything check the ECU power is present by measuring voltage at the fusebox and on its relay socket if OK then check the connections to the crank speed sensor and consider replacing this sensor if the wiring / connections look OK
If the car will start using a squirt of quick/ easi start into the intake then this confirms the problem is lack of fuel
its possible that you may have disturbed the wiring loom and broken a wire which was already on its way out
so in 1 way this could be viewed as a good thing as it could have happened at 3am in the middle of nowhere
I'm talking about the wire down to the sensor
but equally it could be an issue with the main engine wiring loom where it passes over the top of the engine and through the bulkhead to get back to the ECU
do you still need help?
