Hey all, me again with another newby question sorry...... ive swapped my factory fitted rear aero spoiler for the stock active decklid spoiler.. but the thing does not go down, when i bought the deck lid the spoiler bit was up thinking it would go down when fitted, the car has the active spoiler switch which was missing the fuse,fuse inserted but no lights on switch and still no activity, also gave it a rag to see if speed worked but nothing so my question is does this need to be coded in for it to work? Or have I bought a duff one
Many thanks Thumb

Pedro,
You'll needed to get it coded back to active. This is usually done at your local indie Or OPC.

Here is your wiring, you should apply 12v to A5 and A6 to raise or lower it.[/img]

I have coded the wing using the Foxwell NT510/520 diagnostic tool. Costs ca. 100 Quid and may be cheaper than going to an OPC plus you have it for other diagnostic uses etc.

Pedro a 15 mins job at the OPC to recode it back into active setting. Grin I won't debate your choice to remove the aero wing for a pop up Surprised Grin unless it was aftermarket. if it was OE and you still have the aero front bumper you may feel some negative aero effects from removing the wing but leaving the bumper , I know I did when I took my wing off to be re painted.

The codeing is either for a fixed spoiler or a deployable one .. simple to alter at an indy or an opc .

Obviously .. if its coded incorrectly it wont work Smile

deMort, is it possible to decode the spoiler auto lift, while retaining the functionality of the button for manual activation?
Thanks.

No. Fixed spoiler setting disables the manual switch

If you decide to keep the auto lift rear wing and sell the fixed aero one .
Please let me know, I have a good home for it.

Cheers Tim
