If the engine isn't turning over then it's not the TDC sensor at fault,more likely a corroded connection to the starter motor.

From memory the starter is hidden right up at the back of the engine which is a bit of a pain to get to,but you need to try and pull the small wire off of the solenoid and see if it's clean.

If all seems well there,then it could a battery/starter/earth fault,but I'd start with checking the wire to the starter and go from there.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
