I would guess starter fuse first, then starter. When you turn key, if you don't hear a click, you should focus your attention on the fuse first and then the starter. If you hear a click, then most likely (80%) its the starter solenoid. try to start the car in neutral to rule out the neutral safety switch...good luck

Check the pins in the cam sensor,one might be bent and not making a good connection.I am assuming you did not have a cam sensor code before unplugging the sensor.

Timing belt should have been changed at 60,000 miles. A loose timing belt or teeth missing from synchronous belt will lose timing. Damage to valves can occur if timing is not correct.
