So you're taking advice from someone who once had a crank sensor go bad and think that's what's wrong with yours too??? Why not treat your vehicle as though it had other parts. Start with an OBD code scan to see if the computer has stored a diagnostic code. Don't mess with the crank sensor until you have a good idea what's wrong. If the engine runs as long as you have the key in "start" position, you might also want to check the keyswitch. Also check your dash, as mine started and died one day and I was tired and did not notice the Anti-Theft light blinking. If that is blinking you will need to keep your car in the on posistion for 10-15 minutes then when the light is illuminated and not blinking your good to turn it on again.
