When you say TCP sensor I take it you mean the TDC sensor (or crankshaft position sensor). If it was faulty it wouldn't prevent the engine from turning over and better still the engine wouldn't start on a bump. I take it the click is coming from the starter solenoid. Have you checked the engine earth strap is secure and undamaged. You could try running a jump lead from the engine to the negative terminal of the battery as a temporary earth lead. Also is the battery in good nick. There's nothing worse for a battery than a duff starter.
