Question about Cars & Trucks
Car will only startwhen I ground a wire at the ignition module
Some of the modules are aluminum and the are mounted to the steel to make the ground. The aluminum oxidizes and loses contact. I usually use a fine sandpaper and clean the mounting surfaces. I have also added a ground jumper wire from a mounting bolt on the module to an engine bolt to get a good ground.

SOURCE: car wont start
I noticed you replace the crankshaft sensor, but not the CAMshaft sensor.
The Ignition module takes the input of both sensors to tell the coil when to energize.
This sensor should come up as an error code when you attach a obd reader.
Even if your light is not on - there may be a code. If it is not your vehicle originally, some people pull the bulb!

Resistive cottection between PIP (pin6) wire and connector at the ignition module. Cleaned and soldered wire to connector pin. Runs fine.
