SOURCE: replace crankshaft sensor

Crank sensor on that car should be located near the pulley end of the motor, and near the firewall side. Fairly easy to get to.

The motor is gone and the switch could be gone too.

I would replace both to be on the safe side.

Most times that will only happen if the shift rail isn't adjusted right or if the internal fork that moves the synchro or the synchro itself is worn, all of the above preventing complete gear engagement. If all other gears are normal it's safe to assume that the problem is inside the transmission.

2007 pt crusier will not crank after it has been run. Will not turn the starter over. Please help

Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good, voltage and ground. Just about anybody answering questions here can tell you how to jump the starter motor, just to see if engine will crank? That doesn't mean it will start, that depends on the problem?
Make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set. Safety is your responsibility. Remove starter relay, use jumper wire between terminals 1 and 4 in diagram. Terminal 1 should be hot the time. That should send voltage to starter motor and crank the engine.
I can't tell you what is wrong unless you can do some testing?
