this test.....I've got the multimeter, just need to figure out the proper way to check the resistance. Does the car have to be running, or does it have to have auxiliary power only, or can I test this "no-key-involved"? Also, is this connector obvious when looking at the topside of the engine? I don't have a repair CD or manuel, and I'm still learning exactly what is what under the hood. If it turns out to be the ICV, I'm confident that I can do the replacement myself, I just need some tips on the troubleshooting. Thanks a bunch, really appreciate it!


....fuel rail. Unplug the connector. With a digital ohmmeter, check resistance betw. the center terminal and each outside terminal. Both should read about 20 ohms. A reading under 10 ohms means there is an internal short; most likely frying the transistor in the ECU.
