    That's not unknown, the heat soaks through the cooling system and the fans cut in. There is a note in the hand book about it.

    No axles on a 9-5, they are drive shafts. What you describe is a reluctor ring, they crack and if the ring isn't a continuous loop they stop working because there isn't a magnetic circuit. Cracking...

    The most likely cause is a broken reluctor ring and you won't find that with a multimeter unfortunately. That is what Bruno has called the ABS ring.
