Fixed wing wiring harness question

Recommended Posts

I have searched for this question, but unfortunately, this is one of those issues in which there has been quite a few different answers out there. I have a 2000 Porsche C2 which currently has no wing. I have recently purchased what I believe is a Shaw GT3 type wing which does not have a brake light in it. My question is, can I get by with doing the jumper between pins 2 and 5 (that has been discussed) in the current wiring harness to disable the wing warning I will get on my dash? If not, is Part# 996.612.070.51 the correct fixed wing wiring harness I would need for my setup? My second question is if I install the wing without either of these things done yet, will I do any harm to my car other than having a warning light on the dash?

I called my local Porsche dealer and they did not seem up to speed on this. They advised me that the only thing I may have to do is stop by and they may have to reprogram my car's computer to understand it has a fixed wing now. It just seems from everything I've read that a 2000 996 will need more than that.

The wing I purchased was used and does not include a wiring harness. I'm just trying to get everything together so I can install correctly right away. Thanks for any help!
