Default Noticed a green connector under the dash disconnected?

I was in the process of installing my HD radio and noticed this under the dash (passenger side) by the carpet. It appears to be a green plug that is not connected....
Would anyone know what this for? Should it be connected?

Typically, that is half of the "flash block" and needs to be connected ONLY for flashing the ECU with a new map... my swapped 00' ONLY has the green connector, while others also have a white connector that gets jumpered while flashing..

So no, it stays disconnected..

LOL! Thanks...
You would think something like that would be in a hidden place and not out in the open to fool with!

The GD has that plug under the dash on the far left of the drivers foot well. It's kind of a pain, literally, to get to, but you can get to it.

For what it's worth, a BL Legacy has two sets of green connectors, one under the glove box and the other inside of the fuse box that appear when you drop the dash.

The ones under the glove box are for flashing the ECU and the ones in the fuse panel are to use the onboard code reader.
