Passenger side front of the engine near the crank pulley below the water hose that goes to the heater core, you'll see notches on the crank pulley that are read by the sensor.

The wiring runs up the front of the engine and ties into the harness near the water temp sensors, it is prone to damage so you may want to perform some circuit checked between the crank sensor and the ICM before replacing the sensor.

The PIP (profile ignition pickup) sensor is a hall effect sensor; google hall effect sensor testing and there are a couple of videos on the topic.

With a multimeter across the sensor leads (I would test at the IDM to verify wiring integrity and avoid being near any moving parts) my information shows that it show 0.3-1.2 volts AC when cranking.

Stepping back for a moment - you have verified powers / ground at the PCM / IDM and checked to make sure this isn't a lose / faulty pcm power relay or something like that? (It feeds power to both the PCM and IDM)
