Angry 2003 pt won't start

I replaced the coil, wires plugs and the crankshaft sensor. no go. THe codes I got were 129,118 and 522 in that order. 522 is oil pressure switch. Could the pressure switch cause the car not to start? can you bypass this switch to test that condition some how? Newer timing belt and was running just fine. The car started once and ran good but just quit again. Fuel pressure test was good over 100psi- 120psi.
I got spark and fuel. In my hay day that was the only thing required.

When I get this running its gone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hate to help you out just to get rid of it but yes the oil sensor will stop the car from starting. I've seen it happen a few times. I know of no way to test it.

P0129: Barometric Pressure Sensor Out -Of-Range .

P0118 ECT Sensor Voltage Too High.Engine coolant temperature sensor input above the maximum acceptable voltage.
