Well thanks for all the compliments!

Being the cheap AR engineer that I am, I went through the Beck Arnley Manual and figured out which wires to splice together.

So attached is the wiring diagram I followed. I got the first A2-A5 splice from someone here and verified it; I came up with the A6.

Here is how I did it, when I removed the pop up spoiler I cut the wiring harness part that awached to the two switches on the factory pop-up spoiler. I wish I would have given myself a little more room to work with the wires were I cut it. This made my 3rd brake light inop as well as receiving the spoiler not deployed warning and light. The spoiler I installed did not have a light.

So where I cut the wires on the spoiler wiring harness, I found the corresponding wires to the diagram and spliced them. I spliced the Grey/Brown (Spoiler warning) to the Brown to the Brown/Orange (Third Brake Light) right were I cut the wires to remove the factory spoiler. My third brake light works as well as disabling the spoiler warning and light.

If my spoiler had a light, I could have hooked up the original brake light wires to it, and then instead of splicing the Brown/Orange you would splice the Brown/Black.

or you could do what i did and simply buy the correct aero wiring harness pigtail from the dealer! That way you can sell the motorized portion or swap them back without issue.

For the visual folk. I was going to purchase the harness if this didn't work... Thanks, saved me some $$.

I twisted together A2, A5, and A6. Crossing my fingers it works. Thanks for the diagram. This is the best explanation I could find. My Bentley manual shows a different diagram.
