2008 cobalt 2.2 wont start

Hey guys I had a check engine light come on so I took it to AutoZone to have the codes read. It came up with a thermostat code, cam sensor and a crank position sensor correlation. I THINK they were p0016 and p0341. Anyway..the next day the car wouldn't start.. It would click once followed by rapid clicks. I replaced both sensors but I'm still having the same problem. I don't know a ton about engine's but I can easily repeat the steps taken in YouTube videos. I fixed my pt cruiser with YouTube. Please help me figure this out as I'm not very well off in the money department.
Thanks
Tyler

Rapid clicks means your starter isn't getting enough voltage. Are you sure you didn't just lose a cell in your battery?

Every minute spent angry is a happy minute lost for ever and ever!!!

Did you measure your battery voltage? Did you check all the fuses?
