Default Rear Active Aero troubleshooting

Guys, I just bought my 3rd vr4 and like the first 2, the rear active aero doesn't work

Here's what happened. The front active aero damn was stuck, so I removed the damn leaving only the motor. I then played with the switch, and the rear wing moved 3 times and then stopped again. I then also noticed the front motor wasn't moving either, so I got another one and connected it to the harness. I just held it in my hand and had by buddy play with the switch. The front motor then started to work, but the rear one still doesn't work. I also changed the AA switch and the AA computer with no luck. I'm hearing clicking coming the active aero computer in the trunk, but the rear wing isn't moving. It's stuck in the up position.

I then unplugged the spoiler harness in the back and connected a voltmeter and had no power going into the spoiler when I played with the switch. I know their is power coming out of the harness because my spoiler breaklight is working. I am baffled at this point

Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like you might have a cable problem, although the most comon problem is the limit switches. If the spoiler is stuck either up or down then it's the limit switches, if the aero light in the dash isn't on.

Good luck,
Tommy

The limit switches are the ones located inside the rear spoiler motor right? Even if it were the limit switches, shouldn't I still get power to the harness when I play with the switch?

OK, the harness is included the AA power and the break light power, assume all the harness and limited switch is workable, there also you have 2 things you may concern, the front AA white color circle limited switch beside the motor, and the rear spoiler shoe air & guide pin,






because, Front AA limited switch is in wrong position, even though you can play 3 times or more, when the Front AA limited switch goes to wrong position, the whole AERO kit will not function, you must inspect the front AA limited switch 1st, 2nd try to disassemble the rear spoiler to see the shoe air & guide pin is broken or not, if broken, the rear wing motor cannot push or pull the wing up & down, hope can help you!
