That must be it. Without crank sensor the engine doesn't run, but without cilinder indentification sensor the engine does run. Only you will have a higher fuel consumption due to the injection strategy. Instead of banked injection it will inject every engine rotation (longer waiting time till the fuel get sucked in).

I would say so , and , as mentioned previously , not having this connected is unlikely to prevent your engine from running properly .
