Rear spoiler


Recommended Posts

Hello every one,

I have a 05 996 turbos.

just wanted to know why my rear spoiler light malfuctioned is on. when I test drive the car three times. it looks like the wing is fuctioning properly. when i reached 75miles it popped up,when i slow down it goes down. i tried it 3 times, and check the rear for its function and everythings all right. but light is still on, i wonder if it is the micro switches that are going bad? or is it something to do with the speedometer isue? anybody has any idea? I remove the system and check for leacks,NO leacks on any rams or the unit. Thank you.ALI

By disconnecting the battrey would it clear the code OR I would need a scanner?because when you start the car there is no spoiler light ,only when you reach 75mils light comes on you can see spoiler comes up all the way and when you stop is goes down all the way.when you turn off the car and turn in on again no warning light seen, until you drive and reach 75mils again.

Switch pack at fault on the right side. Look if it is not out of position. I had to tape mine to keep it firmly positioned.... If it didn't work operate the spoiler manually , once completely up force the right side up to see if it reach completely the deployed position.

I think i fixed it yet not sure i test drive and wing operate correctly ,and light did not come on, what i did, remove both micro switches and so slightly open their contact with a ortho plier,i was thinking may be when i press them in their places their contact were press, light if off i am afraid to place the cap back because it may mobe the wires and switches.left the cap out for now, i may have to replace the switches. does any one know where you can get the best price for them.

One thing that i learn from this spoiler isue is if your system is not leaking oil ,the failure alert sign is due to micro switches, i play with both switches by adjusting their gap, Increasing or decreasing the gaps in the switches has direct effect in the warning light and spoiler fuction.i did this several time until system start to operate corectly and failure light is gone. I order the switches thru a comany call ECStunig and i will replace both if my switches fail.I wanted to share this with you.
