Thank you very much! Do you have any idea as to whether either of those are costly repairs? Also, awkwardly, one of the rear windows rolls down at the driver control but won't roll up...and the steering wheel controls for radio do not work. Any thoughts about either of those?

Both the fuel filter and crank sensor is not that expeinsive to replace,On the window issue,sound,s like bad switch,in master switch ,if you can let it up by the button on the back door?On the steering radio controls,lot,s of time it,s and issue with the radio,harness that go,s from steering wheel to radio,but could all so be in the switches them self in steering wheel,sorry there is no quick fix for that..

So, I'm guessing that all of the problems are separate issues, unrelated to each other? My car really hasn't had the cranking issues, lately. But yesterday, I struggled for several minutes to get it to start. I usually never let the low fuel indicator stay on...I get get gas as soon as it comes on. Friday, I realized it had been on until the miles to empty wouldn't register on the screen. I got a half tank of gas and the very next day- it gave me the problem cranking. Would this be something that indicates fuel filter? Or is it still equally as likely to be a crank sensor?
