Default 2001 cruiser not starting

I have a 2001 pt cruiser that my girlfriend drives and this past weekend it cutoff while running and hasn't started up since. It was recently in an accident and I replaced the radiator and put a new fender amd bumper on and also took out to a shop andhad a new water pump installed. Since it hasn't started I have replaced the cam sensor it was only code that came up. I have checked battery and wires and still not firing,

Hopefully when they did the water pump they also replaced the timing belt because the labor is about the same.
Did you get cam sensor from dealer? You should - aftermarket ones don't work well with the PT.
You can get it online from Wyckoff Chrysler...
Cam sensor is a code also given whe timing belt breaks.

how many miles on it? and i hope you had them replace the timing belt and tensioner at the same time you had the water pump replaced. they're all in the same area and need to be removed to get at the water pump and visa versa.

as usual, just a bit late on the reply.
