Won't start/turn over

Posted this same thread yesterday and after doing some research I wondering if it may be the crank sensor, last week 3 different times after it started it ran really rough, turned it off and restarted and it was fine. Now it won't start or turn over and apparently these are symptoms of a bad crank position sensor, any thoughts would be welcome. Does anyone know how to test it? Where is it located?

Found out the battery is good and the starter is fine, ran a jumper wire to the starter and it turned over but wouldn't start, replacing the crank position sensor in the morning and will post my results.

Could also be the cam position sensor as it controls the fuel injectors.

(ASD) relay check that out, I had the same symptoms and this was it, also your timing could be off...can find the Automatic shut down relay up in the engine bay fuse box.
