The sensor is located under the car on the passenger side of the transmission near the bottom of the bell housing. It is held in with a single bolt.

SOURCE: crankshaft position sensor location

Hello. One way to check if it is working is when you try to start the car does the needle move on you tac? If not then your crank sensor is more then likely the problem. It is located on the backside of the engine under the intake manifold. If is in about the center of the block. There will be a 10mm bolt holding the sensor in. If you decide to change it yourself (not to terrible of a job) unplug the sensor, remove the bolt and spin it back and forth slightly while pulling it out. It may be stoburn and you might have to work at it for a little bit (not a done of room) but it will come. When it's out the sensor will be shaped kind of like an L. I have changed a few of these over time and they can be a little stoburn. To install just reverse the process.

The crank sensor is located behind the harmonic balancer or also known as the main drive pulley for your belts. You need to remove your belt and then remove this pulley to locate the crankshaft sensor

2002 BMW 745i code p0370 and it won't start

This is a generic code which says " Timing Reference High Resolution Signal A Malfunction ". This sounds like an electronic problem from where the computer gets a signal form sensors ( in this case probably a camshaft or crankshaft sensor ) to determine top dead center cylinder #1, in order for the computer to determine the correct timing. Since the computer is not sensing correct timing ( be it electronic or maybe your timing belt has skipped a tooth or more?) this would be the reason for your car not starting.
