Try the ignition switch,
For the Crank sensor there is a small metal disc that mounts behind the sensor if that is cracked or dammaged or installed backwards you will get same results as if it wasn't Make sure the timing marks line up on your timing belt. www.kiatechinfo.com

my thoughts on this are that you have the car timed on the wrong stroke. a four stroke engine has an intake and an exhaust stroke that if it is timed on the exhaust the crank and cam sensors will not know when to fire the ignition or the injectors they will essentially be firing when the car is trying to excavate the mixture of fuel into the exhaust manifold. double check the timing of the car and go from there. If that is already done then I am assuming that the car has a crank sensor that needs to be gapped correctly into the ring as does the cam sensor. This is a common problem among many makes with these sensors that take the place of traditional timing and distributor.

It sounds like you have a vaccum leak to the engine. with the engine running at idle listen to see if you can hear a hissing noise especially around the intake manifold

Did you set the ignition timing after you installed the dist.? If yes, I'd say you got a bad distributor(the one you just put in) since all the codes you're getting are directly for sensors located within the distributor.

you bypassed the wires that connect to the sensors? that would have been my first guess the harness that plugs into the sensor. after that i would check the ground connection from the ecm. wouldn't hurt to check the battery posts too. if the battery posts are oxidized you can have all kinds of goofy electrical problems. hope that helps.
