Had that one happen.

sensor on either on the side or top of your valve cover. Tells ecu when to spark based on cam positions.......definately kills spark if you cut one.

things to check- continuity of the wire/wires... is there a break(open) in the wire between the connector and the ecu? are wires shorted to each other or ground?
get a digital volt ohm meter (dvom)... helps if you have a wiring diagram...

also check the pins on the sensor connectors

check the voltage and signal output of the sensor... this is faster for me so id do this first. i use a powerprobe3, but you can use any self powered test light.. ignition on, one wire to the sensor should get battery voltage... engine cranking, other wire should have a pulsing(flashing) ground signal that goes to the ecu...

kinda technical, but hope it helps
