Re: CANT FIND ANYTHING

If this is base model with an add on or aftermarket spoiler, you will need to tap into the brake light circuitry and extend to the new spoiler wiring. Possibly a trailer lighting connection tucked in the trunk or just tie in to the brake lights themselves. Believe it's a wht/blk wire from brake switch, blk wire to ground.

Re: CANT FIND ANYTHING

When I open the trunk I see all the wiring for the third brake light. Then to the right coming from the spoiler there is a skinny black/red/white wire going into the trunk, into the car and also another insulated wire going the same way. I have no idea where they go or what wire to cut and connect lol

Re: CANT FIND ANYTHING

There are 2 wires for your spoiler. Usually on cars that came with the spoiler factory - only the spoiler light was hooked up and not the 3rd brake light. Some states tend to fail our cars due to this, so people will just unplug the spoiler light and plug in the brake light.


It's just as simple as unplugging one and plugging in the other. However if you do not have the extension that runs to the spoiler light - then you'll have to either make your own coming from the brake light - or just disconnect the brake light/ remove it and install an SH rear deck and run the wiring straight to the tail light harness.

one of the other wires coming from your trunk lid is the sensor for the latch if i'm not mistaken.
