SOURCE: Car will not crank. Lights & radio all work.

First thing I would do is get under the car and hit the starter with a hammer, not with everything you have, but not too gently either. The brushes in the starter are usually the culprit. So tap it two or three times medium hits, then try to start it. If it starts, you need a new starter. Keep the hammer handy, so you dont get stuck.
Make sure when you do hit the starter, you hit the body of it and not the wiring/electrical connections, this would break them beyond repair and possibly beyond rebuild condition too. Good luck!

I have a 2007 530 xi and will not run without spraying it. Has only 9.5 volts to the fuel pump during cranking

The voltage is ok, maybe the pump's fuel pressure check valve is defective and the fuel pressure bleeds off and that causes a hard start.

2007 530xi Sports Wagon: where is battery located on 2007 bmw 530 xi...

If it's not under the hood, then the only other place BMW places their batteries is in the trunk. Since it's a Sport Wagon, pull up where the rear spare would be and it will be there, usually on the right hand side.

Hope this Helps,

There is no manual overide. You need to press against the glass from the inside and the outside and push it up whilst getting someone to operate the button. This will get the window up.
