Default help.. simple problem (i hope)

Okay, so last night i was driving home and I noticed a clicking noise coming from the clutch pedeal when I let the clutch in and out. The car drove fine all the way home. When I pulled the car into the garage, I looked at the clutch pedal to determine the source of the clicking. A wire was hanging down and touching the pedal every time I put it in. The male wire clip had come out of its female clip, and therefore was hanging down and touching the clutch pedal. I reconnected the clips.. clutch didnt click anymore.. problem solved, right??

WRONG!

When I started the car this morning.. BOOM! CEL!

I disconnected the clips and drove it around, and it ran fine. I reconnected them and started the car and it CEL'ed my bitch ass again.

SO.. anyone else had this problem or any ideas on how to fix it??

The wire clips are a solid green color and are located up under the left side of the drivers "seating area".. up under the fog light etc.. controls (my fogs and turn signals, etc.. worked fine while driving with clips disconnected.

Thanks in advance guys!

those may be the diagnostic wires. i remember hearing those wires were green and were to be disconnected unless running diagnostics on the car. could be wrong.

Yes i think those wires are self diagnostic test wires. even though it is an obd 2 i think you can still perform a self diagnostic test. You are only supposed to have them connected if you are performing a self diagnostic test. let me ask you this. When you connect the wires does the cel flash or does it just stay on. If it flashes that means you have an old cel code on your car and you should reset the ecu. if it just stays on (not flashing) then that is exactly how it is supposed to be. i would just tape the wires up under the dash farther so that it doesn't make that annoying sound when you clutch.

I don't know about Subaru's, as I've never actually had the occaision to check, but on every other car I've worked on, you have to connect that terminal and do something else, like hit the brake and the clutch, then shift to third, then turn on the AC, set the heater to half, turn on the parking lights, and say the magic words before the codes flash on the CEL.

Well, it's never that complicated, but it's often odd. Something you'd never do in normal circumstances. Dodges used to do it by having you cycle the ignition from ON to OFF five times in rapid sucession.
