Default Debug PIC18F26K20 with Pickit3

Our software works on some of our PCBs but not others.
We program them with pickit3 and use ICSP.
Can we just plug the Pickit3 into the board and debug it like that?

When i try to debug I am getting "Connection failed" error in MPLAB X IDE. Do you know why?
I have the 5 pin header in the pickit3 and its connected to the PCB.

I actually programmed the board with this connector/wire assembly so i know the 5 lines are connected (MCLR,Vdd,Vss, PgD,PgC).

need to see the schematic for the relevant part.
IF the debug lines are connected to other components other than the programmer you may have debugging issues

is the board powered by either the PK3 or externally (better)?
