02 996 C2 spoiler permanently raised

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to keep the engine spoiler in a permanently raised possition? Every drive I drive I manualu raise it via the fuse lanel botton. Im worried that always raising it will cause the actuator to fail prematurely. If I can just keep it always raised would be perfect.

Will it throw a code or cause a dashlight to illuminate?

Codes are for emissions related stuff.  The dashlight should stay off.  You are simply cutting the power to the spoiler.  The other thing to try is remove the spoiler up and down relays in Relay Support 2, under the rear carpet.

D8 is not the correct fuse to pull for an 02 c2, D8 is strictly the radio. Which explains why my radio stopped working when I pulled it. D7 is listed for rear spoiler.

Heres a link with all the 996 models and years fuses listed:

Interesting.  Glad you got it figured out.  My 99 C2 fuse block diagram is this

Right, the placement differs from year to year and even by specific model. The chart i linked covers everything classified as 996

Quick update

Remove of fuse D7 allows the rear spoiler to remain raised, however it also disables the engine compartment from opening. Perhaps there is another way to keep the spoiler raised by disconecting the lifter mechanism, though I dont want to have an illuminated dash light for a spoiler malfunction.

Did you try removing the spoiler down relay?  Seems like that would only affect the down function of the spoiler and not something else in the fuse circuit.  You might give it a try.

Where are those relays?

 

In relay panel #2, under the rear parcel trim panel, behind the rear seat backrest.
