Default Cobb ap install issue on 06 sti

I went to install it tonight and when I went to connect the green connectors to put it into test mode I found that they were already connected . I bought the car back in Oct so it has been on since then at the very least, but I'm sure it has been like that far longer.

I played with it for a while, but I couldn't get it to install at all. I tried every which way, but without avail. It just kept saying connect green connectors whether they were connected or not. Does anyone have any advise or ideas?

Guess would be someone installed a switch somewhere. You would notice the car in test mode...

/\ This or check the passenger kick panel for another set of green connectors.

^Yes those are the wires I'm referring to. I have an 06 sti so they are under the dash on the drivers side. I couldn't find a switch anywhere. Both the wires seem to be connected well and it seems to be making a good connection. I need an ohm meter to make sure the wires are getting power.

Unfortunately there is nothing there. You were thinking it may have an extra set where an legacy would be right, because that's where I looked.

the green connectors on the driver side underneath the steering wheel to the left are the ones you are looking for, i would follow them in both directions and make sure that they go somewhere and have not been cut, or possibly they use to lead to a relay or fuse box and maybe one of them has been removed.
