check the crank sensor wiring harness. pull on the wires a bit, to see if it will crank over. it should be against the firewall in back of engine. its a 3 wire connector. they are prone to fail.if wire harness is bad, replace it. hope this helps!!

It is variable, depending on service, but nearly always 200k miles plus.

what were the specific inspection details like Co, 02, CO2 and NOx readings?

furthermore, have you done any maintenance like fuel filter, oil change and spark plugs?

OK the battery in good charge should be at 12.5 volts ( as measured with a voltmeter across the terminals) When the engine is running you should expect the reading to be about 14 volts. Put the lights on ( a load on the battery) and the voltage can go as high as 14.5v. Switch everything off (I mean everything..radio etc) and disconnect the negative terminal to the battery. Now put the meter in ammeter mode and measure the current between the negative terminal and the cable that is now disconnected. It should be really very low current (milliamps at most), switch on the lights to show ourself what that current drain looks like. If the residual current looks significant take out each fuse in turn and return it noting on pen and paper any drop in current when the fuse is out. This process will identify the circuit that is draining the battery. Check the wires and junctions in this circuit for shorts etc. If its lights try removing bulbs until the current drain stops If possible leave the fuse out over night on this circuit and see if this effects the battery's ability to charge and stay charged.

Could be bad battery cables, they wear out, too.

My volvo 940gl did exactly the same, it turned out to be the fuel injection relay. I changed it and the car ran perfectly happy for the next 2 years until I sold it.

if the fuse is good i could be the switch itself take out one of the switch and check wires with volt meter

The fulerail has welded "fastenig ears" usually one of thease welds causes material fatigue and eventually cracks. exchange the pipe. i seem to remember that it is not to expensive.
I seem to remember that it is a metric pipe so you van always fit a cutring fitting plug to seal it in the end.
