Default Front Active Aero Bypass?



If I understand the wiring schematic correctly, the front active aero uses pin #1 and #2 to send a 12v signal to pin number #4 (guess it's some kind of limit switch). If we ran a 12v directly to pin number #4, I have a suspicion that we'd be able to bypass the front active aero by fooling the AA ecu that it's always in both up and down position in the front. I may try this in the next couple of days (for science ) I doubt the motor itself sends an error back to the ecu if it's disconnected and only cares if it's up or down. Thoughts?

Wouldn't it just be easier to have the motor there? I've been running both my VR-4s this way for years. Just a motor without any bracketry for the venturi skirt/air dam.

There's s write up on here on how to do that. Think it was called "a.a. manual operation " but i did it in order to control the rear wing. Just 2 relays wired up on the aa computer. If that's what you're trying to do

Had the same question about this, I'm tired of seeing the front aero assembly without the plastic just to enable the rear control, to me looks the same, pins 1, 2 just activate the internal AA computer relay, but how it knows if it's already up or down?
From the diagram, pin 1-2 just send some voltage to activate that relay (depending of the kinda circular limit switch) and that's it, pin 4 doesn't go to any other thing other than the coil, any link to the double relay bypass?
I've found just the SPTD relay how to.

Sorry im not computer savy enough to link the double relay method but maybe someone else can. I just googled "3000gt active aero manual operation" and the website was wordpress.com and it was a link from 3si by stupidvr4 / imclumzy's . that was the directions i used a couple years ago and mine still works to this day
