Those are for the "clear memory" mode. Both are different things for the same system - your service manual should detail proceedures for reading codes and clearing them too.

Just get one used from the junkyard, they are way too expensive to get from the dealership.

this is what the part looks like but dont be surprised that it costs 100 dollars. get one from the yard, the purge comntrol solenoid and egr solenoid are the same thing, any parts car should have 2

I will have to disagree with 85Sub4WD

As Miles points out on MPFI and turbo cars
the connectors are black in color and located under the dash.

the white (black) connectors are for retrieving the error codes
stored in the ECU
hence they are called
"Read Memory" connectors

Please try and fine time to read these links
http://www.ultimates...rticle.php?a=44
http://www.troublecodes.net/Subaru/

Here you will read how to use the white(black) connectors to
read codes
or
to clear codes
