Was told my crankshaft sensor needed replacing. Car was running bad. Shop ran codes and came up with crankshaft sensor. I replaced it with a new one now car won't start. Even if I put old one back, car still won't start. No problem starting, before replacing sensor.
My car has 20000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
I would recommend retracing your steps. If you disconnected the battery before replacing the sensor, this could be one cause of the vehicle not to start. A new crankshaft sensor should not have prevented the vehicle from starting. The cause of the no start issue is either related to a fuel or ignition issue that the vehicle has or something that happened during the replacement of the crank sensor. I would retrace your steps to make sure that everything is plugged in properly and if this does not work have the ignition and fuel systems tested.
