Are you sure you're hearing the starter relay click? The automatic shutdown (ASD) relay will be clicking too. The crankshaft position sensor has nothing to do with the starting system.

A common problem is the neutral safety switch. You might try bypassing the starter relay to verify the rest of the system works. Do that by removing the cover from the starter relay, installing it that way, then squeezing the movable contact, or you can use a piece of wire or stretched out paper clip to connect terminals 30 and 87 in the socket.
