crankshaft position sensor use

On the MX6, is it used only to detect misfire, or is it also used for spark timing ? If it is used for spark timing,
then failure of the sensor can prevent the car from starting at all.

I would like to know this. I parked the car one evening. Next morning it turns over fine, but no hint of starting.
The 02 code light is on, meaning something is wrong with the crankshaft position sensor, or wiring, or engine. If it is only used for engine misfire in our cars, then the car should start.....and I would know the car is not starting because of some other issue besides the crankshaft position sensor light.
