I think your problem is injectors not firing, and is linked to the Powertrain Control Module. Disconnect the battery for 30 minutes to reset the PCM. Reconnect the battery and try to start the car. If it still doesn't start, pull a spark plug and see if the tip of the plug is wet with fuel. If it is dry, then you are not getting fuel to the cylinders. If you have fuel pressure and spark, but noe fuel in the cylinders, it has to be computer related.

97 oldsmobile achieva wont fire changed coil pack spark plugs cam sensor still wont start


Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good.
If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse.
If you having a problem with more than one system, I want to check for rpm signal, that usually comes from the crank sensor. Not sure why you replaced cam sensor? I always want to check sensor wiring circuits before replacing anything. Don't replace anything unless your testing points in that direction.

2011 Chevy Malibu lt. P0016 code. Replaced both cam sensor.and crank sensor still won't start


If you have the V6, they have a history of timing chain problems. The tensioner can go bad allowing the chain to rattle and jump time. This weill set the P0016 code since the cam and crank are not sync'ed and will result in a no-start condition.

2001 pontiac grand am se 2.4.car cranks ,but will not start.


The cam sensor is in the head near the throttle cables. The crank sensor is in the block near the oil filter. There aren't any sensors behind the balancer. If it is a problem with the security system the security light will be blinking. Does the vehicle start and die or just not crank or crank but not fire?
