Transmission killing engine?

My transmission went out and now I canít get the car to crank. Will the computer not let the engine turn over to protect itself? Thanks for any insight.
The transmission shop says I need to get it to start before they can work on it.
í06 Maxima My husband was driving it, stopped at a stop light and when he tried to take off it wouldnít go into gear. It had been having trouble going into 3rd gear for awhile. Then the car shut off and hasnít wanted to turn over since. It keeps draining the battery as well.

Too late. The battery was so dead after it sat I didnít think about pulling the codes off first. I took the battery to get it charged only to find out the battery was done. Had to get a new one. Now Iím afraid the transmission shop is not going to be able to pull a code. And on top of that even with the new battery the car wonít turn over. The more I crank it the less it wants to turn over. I just donít understand how we went from the car wonít go into first gear to now the car wonít start!

The shop says the alternator was bad. Makes sense. But it wasnít showing any signs before the transmission went out. Guess we shall see.

That would explain as to why the battery kept dying as far as the starting issue may be a bad crank position sensor
