Answers :

You have any check engine light on the dash display? This measn fualt code stored in the PCM.

Also, I suggtes check your master \015\012fuses (underhood) this prevent the computer system from allowing not only spark, \015\012but any of the ignition systems to operate.

Keep us updated.
If you replaced the crank sensor and it will not start, then your truck needs what is referred to as a "CASE learn." This procedure can be performed at qualified garages and dealerships. What it does is correlates the actual crank position relative to it's sensor in degrees of rotation so that the proper timing of firing the spark plugs can be calculated by the engine computer.
