Check for a broken ground wire around the fuel pump. Or somehow you may have tripped the inertia switch under the hood on the side of the shock tower.

They have an emergency inertia switch inside the side panel on the passenger side. Take the cover off and there is a black plastic switch with a red button on top .... pressit back in. This can be triggered by hitting a pot hole, minor fender bender and so on. Hope this helps

Check your INERTIA SWITCH, especially if you've recently had a fender-bender or if the car has otherwise been jarred. The location of the inertia switch on your vehicle should be listed in your OWNER'S MANUAL, but is likely in the driver side interior kick panel.

Crank sensor

Yes your crank sensor tells your computer when to fire the injectors and the spark plugs so, if you have no crank sensor, you have no start. It could prevent your car from starting depending on the conditions when the security system was activated. Has anyone kicked the rear of your car lately? Or have you been in a fender bender? Those 2 things could trip the inertia switch in the fuel pump which could also cause your car to not start like that.
