    Broken Fuel Pump Check Connector?

    Hi All! I have been troubleshooting a no start on my van for a few weeks now. I don't appear to be getting any spark and have followed the FSM's step-by-step troubleshooting in the Ignition chapter which has led me to "Try a New Igniter". Went through and changed distributor cap, rotor, wires, plugs, and coil but still no luck so holding out hope that an eBay Igniter will help me out!

    Anyways, during my troubleshooting I was using the FPCC pretty regularly to make sure fuel was flowing and out of the blue, that connector doesn't seem to work anymore. I was wondering if anyone has had that experience before? I've checked all of the EFI Fuses, Fusible links, Circuit Opening Relay (still feel a click at COR while cranking) etc. but no luck. I'm almost wondering if i possibly fried my fuel pump from using it so much during my troubleshooting? Appreciate your help and insight on this! Any tips for troubleshooting are welcome!

    The fuel pump check connector is to check function of the fuel pump. If you were using it to check for spark, that may be part of your problem since nothing was cranking/turning to make a spark. You were simply priming/pressuring the fuel line with the fuel pump check connector.

    I have an igniter for sale if you want one to buy, just in case that is part of your problem. It's always good to have a spare anyways.

    Private message me for price.

    I may have provided a bit too much context - basically, my FPCC doesn't work after using it a bunch while trying to understand why my van wasn't starting. Curious if anyone has any tips on how to troubleshoot this? Or is this the marking of a burned out fuel pump? It was working just fine for a long time. I still get a "click" at the Circuit Opening Relay while cranking.

    Appreciate the help!
