Isn't that about where the crank position sensor lives? That would certainly stop things dead. It is easy to remove, and replace.

That part on the right side was the air pump that puts air in the engine at start up to make the converter light up faster. That wont keep the engine from running. The key in your dash is the immobilizer being active, that will keep it from starting. Try a different key FOB. If you still have the problem, the keys will have to be reprogrammed or the FOBs are not communicating with the car.
