92 240 wagon intermittent no start. Starts right up with a jump. 200 1992

Phil- you are a true thinker and I thank you for that!
I’ll try to answer some of your questions.

Actually the car does not start fine all other times. It intermittently won’t start in the morning after running fine the day before. Jump brings it back to life immediately.. when it doesn’t start there is little to no crank, then less, then none. 1,2,3.

I do check the fuses quite often. Haven’t seen any gremlins ( though I’ve had wagons that have been possessed by them)

Environmental doesn’t seem to be a factor, rain or shine. Nor does fuel level.

I haven’t checked the crank position sensor myself. I asked a mechanic to check it when he replaced the down pipe but I have a suspicion he didn’t and just said it was fine. NOT a Volvo guy by the way.

The worst thing is, I never know if I’ve finally solved the problem until the car strands me somewhere (again)
