You need to have the vehicle checked by scanning for codes that may point to the possible cause. It sounds like the crankshaft sensor may have been damaged when the pulley broke. If you need further assistance diagnosing your cars inability to start issue, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to complete any necessary repairs.
