Jeep Wont Start After ETC light

What up fellas,

Yesterday driving on the highway the truck all of a sudden shut off and lost power, and started blinking the Electric Throttle Control (ETC) light.
The truck has power, I go to start it and cranks but wont turn on. I checked and i can hear the fuel pump loud and clear, so i didnt bother checking the fuel pressure.
But while reading up, i saw something about the crank position and cam position sensors.
I went to Oreillys and replaced both and still no go.

Checked all the fuses, and all my connections, but still no go.

I had my upper radiator hose bust and i replaced it a couple days ago but other than that i havent had any issues, and no check engine lights till this point.
Truck is completely stock.

Shows No codes boss.

I recharged the battery, and its only a couple months old.
I will replace the battery for the sake of it though.

Do the throttle bodies on these engines typically go out?

Also checked the fuel pressure yesterday and i have the 58-60 psi needed.

After trying everything and anything, i decided to take it to a mechanic.

Hes told me apparently the pin on the camshaft broke, causing the timing to be off, thus no start.

Has anyone ever heard of the pin braking off on the camshaft? This truck is driven by my wife, i really doubt thats what happened.
If it were the case, couldn't i just replace the dowel pin? I cant find anything on the subject.
