2. Do the same with the positive connector and terminal.
3. Connect positive to terminal.
4. Connect negative.
Start the car.
No start, but click? Remove battery from the car. Have a friend take you and the battery to an auto parts store. Have 'em perform a free test on the battery.
Battery dead? If yes, how old is it? More than four years? If yes, buy a new battery.
This is a "start" for you. If you're fortunate, it's corroded connections. If you're less fortunate, it's dead battery. If particularly unfortunate, it's solenoid shot on the starter.
Others will chime in with other good things to do. Best of luck, and good wishes for the beginning of your Subaru troubleshooting career.

If it cranks over just fine, you're dropping too much voltage in the starting circuit, or the connection to that spade plug is bad, and may need to be redone with a blue spade connector. Had this happen on two friends' cars recently.

Test your battery so you can rule that out.
