    ..........disconnect the wire.Some of those connectors under the dash are diagnostic connectors for the ECU.They are only ment to be connected to access the ECU.

    there are "test mode connectors" under the driver steering column. these are supposed to be connected to flash your ECU. they should be green in color & when hooked up put your car in test mode.

    if you have a 2.0L, there is another initialization connector that is translucent white (located near the green ones). if you have an 02 wrx, it connects to a blue plug. if it is 03-05's there is a solid white one that the translucent plug goes into.

    as donkey said, if any of these are plugged together, unplug them
