Won't always start. Replaced starter.ignition key and switch, battery is good. all power to dash. amp gage comes up fine; but sometimes NOTHING!!

Where is the fuel pump test connection on a 2002 Chevrolet Astro? Chevrolet use to tape a green test connector sticking out of the wire harness that when 12 volts is applied would power up the fuel pump for testing. Last night it wouldn't start, nor this morning, then late morning I went to listen for fuel pump operation when key is put to the run position, heard the pump and then was able to start the van. I moved the vehicle, and around noon the van wouldn't start again. I could not hear
