RESETTING THE FUEL PUMP SHUT-OFF SWITCH
After a collision, if the engine cranks but does not start, the fuel pump shut-off switch may have been activated. The shut-off switch is a device intended to stop the electric fuel pump when your vehicle has been involved in a substantial jolt.

If your vehicle is a sedan, the fuel pump shut-off switch is located on the right side of the trunk behind the trunk liner.

first you have to check if the motor has power. get a tester and test for power on the motor. if you are not getting power check a fuse, is you are getting power but the motor is not working then you may have to change it.

Check the catalytic converter. It may be plugged up.

I am not sure of the auto transmission sensor, but you are absolutely right, there is shift selector that tells the on board computer the car is in neutral or park. any other position and it will not start. I would say it would be located on the transmission where the shift cable hooks to the transmission. I can't remember weather it is on the outside or in the trans itself. It would make sense for it to be on the outside.
I hope I was of some help.
