It's used for dealer PDI and test/diagnostic functions, and should not be connected at any other times (unless you get an AP which uses this mode to load maps).
When connected, the CEL will flash continously and various relays and solenoids in the car will cycle, as well as the engine fans. If you drive the car in this mode there will also be codes set.
Unplug them, and leave them that way.

Before I had Delta Dash I had my codes scanned at AutoZone. The goob who did it connected the green plug for me, must of thought he knocked it loose or something. I had to call my tuner to figure out what was wrong with my car.
