Question about Cars & Trucks
It would definitely keep the ignition from firing if it was bad. The computer would think it isn't turning over and the fuel pump won't feed an engine that isn't turning over either.

yes it can stop vehicle from starting,but i would call a mobile mechanic to check it out for you,start changing bits willy nilly and it will cost you more in the long run.

Fire on the Sensor? Yes this is a problem. Take the vehicle into the mechanic and have the engine repaired before it becomes an even larger problem.

Did you check to see if you are getting voltage to the coil ?
I would check for trouble codes in the computer and the circuits to the coil first. Could be the EEC relay.

It's not supposed to get "fire" to it. It is a sensor that tells the ECM or PCM the position of the crankshaft so proper timing is given by the ECM (computer)
