Jumping Spoiler Wires

Recommended Posts

Guys, I have been searching posts on the consistent spoiler problems on the 2001 Turbo.  I am not interested in fixing or replacing the leaking rams, I simply want to jump/disable the wiring prior to the microswitches so that I do not get the failure warning light above 75.  I followed a successful post from another member who spiced the grey/black wires on the upper microswitch and the blue/black on the lower microswitch, but now I get the warning light as soon as I start the car.  Any recommendations to cure and prevent the light from coming on ANY time?

 

Thanks in advance.

Well, the ECU is looking for current flow from the limit switches when the wing is told to go up or down.  Normally, with wing down, the bottom switch is closed and the top open.  When the wing goes up, the bottom is open and the top closed.  That said, some have had luck jumpering the top switch.  Another site that sells fixed height kit recommends hooking the gray/brown switch wire (not sure if this ends up being the blue or gray one, but further up it is gray/brown) with the yellow/green motor wire (probably the black one, but further up on the harness it is yellow green).  There may be a difference between 2001 and later years, but I've seen both wiring diagrams and cannot find anything.
