Hello. If the code remained on after the sensor was replaced, then it may be possible that the fault is with the wiring or the ECM. I would verify that the wiring and connector to the sensor are in good shape. If the cam sensor checks out, I would then move on to checking the ignition system for any faults. If the fuel is good, it may be possible that the vehicle is not getting spark, and not starting as a result. For help with this a diagnosis, have a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, come to your car's location to inspect the no-start and assist with repairs.
