Please more detail on this? I did find one green connector that was disconnected on the drivers side kick panel and plugged it in.

Well....as a "motorsports" screen name, Frikkin learn for Subaru.
Typically, the "green connectors" under the dash (may be drivers side, may be passengers side, may be both....) are "test connectors"
In general, they are NOT connected.
When connected, you put the ECU into test mode, typical for flashing an ECU.
Not normally left connected.

Maybe at least read on COBBTuning on marrying an AP. There are likely dozens of other references to the "green connectors" for Subaru with a Google search.

Yes, harsh.
Yes, dealing with Subaru from about 1998.....Subaru/COBB tuning from about 2000

Well it runs. Thanks to the last comments all i can say is it took some ground searching and resets.

As for the "motorsports" comment all I can say is that for years i sold tractions bars and parts from Canada to dealer in California for yes the Honda crowd that I used to build, turbo and race nearly 12-14yrs ago (of you can find video from 2007ish we sponsored the first fwd import to make it to the finals of Pinks all Out). Then i got out of it as a Honda does not drop kids off at daycare well. I got into jeeps. And after building 2 jeeps with SBCs and full four link on 42-44 inch tires and a DD suburban on 39's i decided to get back to imports. Never have i owned a car with so many computers and so picky, so shoot me for having some questions.

I was not denying help, just stating facts that opposed the ideas of others.

OK, i came off harsh, sorry.
A few other "shops" come on here asking rather typical Subaru questions.

Noob section, I should be better, again, sorry.

As to your issue, a few of us commented on grounds. While I was a PITA at points, I did state what to check and why.
Whether my comments, or others, helped you fix it, you fixed it.
Glad it's running for basically nothing more than time.

Congrats.

Thank you for closing this out. What specifically did you find, or was it going over many grounds and somewhere along the line it worked?
Just trying to lay things out for the next peep that finds this thread.

No problem. Hate the internet guru bs myself.

It was just that one ground under the intake that bolts to the intake manifold. That's the only i changed. Tightened it as it was properly sloppy.

The fan relay test/green connector......my bad. Disconnected it and everything is well.

I put my dash back together from my boost and oil pressure gauge install. A few more panels and took it around the block.

Everything feels good enough to drop 3 kids off at school tomorrow in the well missed "my daddy's has a cool car" tomorrow.

Lost my big and cool reply earlier......

Glad it's fixed.

Wasn't this better than getting it to a shop?
