    Try the switch on the top of the steering column.

    the switch has nothing to do with it.

    obviously he understands what you are talking about buy on newer subaru's there is a switch on top of the steering column that is an over-ride for if you dont have your car on or dont have a key in the ignition. try re-setting the ecu by disconnecting the battery, letting it sit a minute or so, and then re-connecting
