Default Crank Angle Sensor same as Crankshaft Position Sensor ?

Is the Crank Angle Sensor the same as a Crankshaft Position Sensor ? I searched and I have all the symptoms of either a bad CPS or bad fuel pump. My 00 DII is shutting off while driving and while sitting at idle for a while, hazards come on, TC light comes on, sometimes SES lights up also but does not stay on and no codes are thrown. I have the extended warranty thru Great Lakes and it specifically says the Crank Angle Sensor is covered as well as the Fuel Pump, although I'm not sure either would qualify as having failed completely or a way to prove to the warranty company either needs replaced ? So far I have been able to get it running again by disconnecting the negative battery cable for about a minute then starts up fine. I don't think the inertia switch is being tripped, at least it is not popping up when this happens.

I'm not a dedicated Land Rover tech but yes the Crank angle sensor should be the same as crank position.

If the fuel pump was/is going bad the truck would stumble to a stall, not die like the key is shut off. The CKP sensor does act like that and will restart after it's allowed to cool off. It's a basic Hall effect sensor that uses magnetic fields to see crank speed. Next time, simply wait the 10 minutes...then try to restart.

I'd expect the CKP sensor to show a fault however.
