Default car wont start but...

So I just bought a 2007 Impreza 2.5I but its a salvage title! im all excited right!, Anyways lets get right to the problem so I waste any more time on how much i love subarus!....I have been driving the car for the past couple weeks, and everythings been going fine until the car doesn't start but after i turn the ignition a couple more times it starts, im like ok maybe it was just a fluke (knowing this is a common sign for a starter going out im slightly worried but not too much) this happens a couple more times in the past few days but i figure it will work enough for me until i can take it in to the local dealership. sometimes it helps to start it when i pump the clutch a couple of times before turning it on (or at least i think it does).... So tonight i go out to go to a rehearsal across town and the car wont start period. nothing not even the little clicking noise that i was getting when it wouldnt start before. not a single response... so i check the batt by trying to jump the car with my old 1995 leggy, no response.... i wiggle the wires and disconnect the batt for a min or two. test no response. i try tapping the starter a few times with a wrench and hammer while a friend turns it over no response...... then i climb under the dash (drivers side--- oh yeah and i already checked all fuses too) and im wiggling the sensor to the clutch just to make sure thats not the problem, test.... no response. climb back under to make sure its all still together and i find the infamous green plugs at the time i didnt know they were for testing and i plugged them in and then the car started but the Check Engine light was on an flashing ( turned off car) so i was like hmmmm interesting so i start the car again same thing flashing light so i turned it off disconnected green plug(btw i know the green plug is for testing and i have unpluged them and left them that way) car starts....... ok what in the heck is going on cuz im thoroughly friggin confused...... any ideas

Other than blind guesses, not sure what you're going to get from here.
