Default 2005 Saturn L300 No Start

I had just replaced the battery on my car under a week ago after it would not start. Later this week i went to start my car and i had a sold crank but it would not start i tried boosting it but no luck. I got it towed to work (i work as an apprentice at a mazda dealership) and tested my battery, starter and alternator and they all check out ok. I checked my fuses and nothing was blown. Then checked to see if fuel pump was working. I can hear the buzz when you first turn on the ignition indicating the fuel pump is priming the system so i know its working. I read online that it might be the CPS sensor. I was wondering if anybody else has had this issue with their car before and was wondering how they resolved their problem. Thanks.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Well, you're already there so either remove it for a resistance check or do it on the car. Resistance should be between 700-1200 ohms. An open reading would mean a failed one. One of the wires is just a shield and goes to ground, purple and yellow should be the cps. Yours is next to the oil filter.

You'll find cps failures all over the S-series, L-series, Vues, and future Auras and Outlooks as age catches up to them. Although not a failure prone item, they do fail from the harsh environment being bathed in freezing or hot oil and vibration.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
