Default dead battery

Ok, so I did an 07 STI (limited) into an 05 Saabaru (wrx). Everything was normal. Had to trim the connectors on the STI cluster. Plugged it in. Got the buzzing noise, which is actually controllable in volume with the dash light dimmer
Also noticed that the ABS light goes out when my cruise control is enabled (Cruise light is always on).
I drove about 10 miles to a garage where I finished up installed the repainted interior pieces I was doing and the redone headliner. Started the car up after about 3 hours there and got about 2 miles before it died on me. Realized it looked like a dead battery but then thought "this sounds just like that issue where the alternator stops recharging the battery!"
So, the only wire I clipped was the A9 (orange/white) as described here:http://www.scoobymods.com/forums/sho...sti+gauges+wrx
to stop the buzzing, which it did. How can I get my alternator back on????????
