Hello I have a 2000 3.2 liter intrepid. Was drive around then at a stop sign the car died. Tried to start but it just cranks. I replaced the spark plugs. I also tested for spark and I dont have any. Could this be the crank position sensor?

Try swapping the ASD relay with another. Also check Fuse 5 20a in the PDC which is power to the Fuel Injectors and Ignition Coils.

Could be a CKP Sensor as shown in the list above.

If timing belt broke, would PCM disable ignition (via ASD relay?) due to not seeing cam position sensor signal? Thought I’d ask cause I don’t know the answer.

(Strange that that list doesn’t mention broken timing belt as possible cause of crank/no start - unless that’s included in “engine mechanical problem”.)

That's correct. Loss of CKP/CMP signal. And I'd assume timing belt would be mechanical.

If the belt broke, I'd think there'd be a noticeable difference in sound when cranking vs a healthy engine. Can't vouch for that as I've never had a broken timing belt on any of my LH cars!

Broken Timing Belt most likely involves bent valves and head rebuilds, etc.

Might want to remove a few bolts on one of the timing cover and pry it back to inspect the condition of the timing belt to see if it's still intact. Could also be the hydraulic tensioner that failed and the list goes on.

I’m thinking it could also be slipped timing belt, because the PCM disables ignition if it detects out of time condition. Peeking thru timing cover gap while cranking would of course tell you if broken belt, but not if belt just slipped a couple of teeth.
