punto 1.9 jtd not starting! PLS Help

i have a w reg 2000 fiat punto and is not starting i can`t find any reasons not to!
i tested the ecu and all i got is p0236
Boost Pressure sensor A circuit range/performance
The reason for this fault is that ECU has received invalid signal from the sensor. The fault is not detected now. Clear fault codes, and observe for future appearance of the same fault. Dashboard warning light was not activated for this fault.
any ideas welcome!

What happens when you try and start it?, does it turn over? If it does is it slow or quick.
How old is the car? Has it had things like a new cambelt at the moment it's impossible to tell anything from what you've said as the fault you found wouldn't stop the car starting its simple coincidental

if it turns over much faster than it normally would when starting, its a good indicator that the cambelt has snapped.

but thats not a definitive answer. you'd need to investigate further
