There's two ways to check the crank sensor first is to check the resistance but that's only good if you know the specs for that particular brand sensor. Next is with an oscilloscope.

I'd first start by visually checking the Battery's terminals then standing voltage(before first start). Then check the CCAs. check the battery's chassis ground and wires associated with the starter(trigger/B+/ground). A battery that is a yr and a half old is half a typical battery's life span and they commonly fail early. I wouldn't be so eager to dismiss it. Then again, the battery should always be the starting point for the beginning of any starting issue aside from fuel level. LOL
