If you can apply 12 volts to the solenoid and make the starter run then the starter and the solenoid are ok. The problem is somewhere in the circuit wiring that connects to the solenoid. Gloyle stated that this kind of trouble is mostly due to the relay which may be under the dash. I highly recommend you go to the Subaru web site and purchase the data you need to help you fix this.

The problem you are having is due to an intermittent connection that appears to be somewhere before the starter solenoid. Like I said before, if you can make the solenoid work by applying 12 volts to the solenoid contact that is normally tied to the ignition switch then the solenoid is ok and the trouble is before that point.
