Crankshaft position sensor

It could be a faulty crank sensor, but that's way too coincidental. I think it's more likely that you didn't use a memory saver or you didn't jump the battery to keep current flow through the car, and this caused the car to lose its settings. Or, due to lack of electrical current, the car lost the code to the fob and immobilized itself.

@GuruNXG69 - the sensor would go out during operation? the car was actually moving when power was slowed then the car stopped. @Ed92626 - how do I " reboot" the car? as mentioned earlier the battery was replaced so it is brand new. Car continues to turn over but will not crank

You might need to reprogram the car to the fob. this is explained in your owners manual and you should be able to find it on line. If the problem is lost operational settings, you might need a mechanic/dealer to get you out of this. I can't see the car and I'm just describing the most likely causes. Beyond this, the car might have immobilized itself.

@ED2626 - well the trouble seems more that originally thought. After some review it was noticed that the fuel pump fuse was the wrong size; call for a 15a and a 25a was installed and had blown. with the correct fuse in place the vehicle started with no problems but didn't get far as the fuse blew again. Luckily I was able to get it to a mechanic shop as I went through 2 more fuses. Apparently the fuel pump is going bad and that's why the dealer had placed a larger fuse in the spot. Glad nothing else was damaged. I appreciate all the help and I'll post an update once the fuel pump has been replaced.
