FS: Spoiler control indicator

I bought this switch but decided I do not like it.

You can check it on ebay here:
Spoiler control indicator

Actually, it is a blank switch with a hole and a led in it and the picture of the car spoiler is a very small sticker. I have the glossy angled version.

To be honest, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone but if you want to buy it's brand new, never used, and you can save a few $$$.

$20 plus shipping OBO.

Thanks

George

Garage
How does this connect, to the instrument cluster? Is it angled for the right or left?
I wouldn't mind getting rid of my last dash blank, so I may be interested.

It's for the left side of the console. I too have one last blank :-) That;s why I bought this. But ended up with a different idea. Even the two blanks in the center console have been replaced by a garage door switch and a switch that turns on the various extra led lights I installed last year...

I was expecting that it would connect to the fuse panel (or somewhere near the spoiler switch). I have read the instructions and it looks like it connects to the gray harness (or however is it called) behind the instrument cluster.

I plan on changing the led lights in my Boxster (one more time, I think it's the third time now ), so I did not go through the instructions thoroughly because I am too bored to remove the gauge again.

I'll scan the instructions tomorrow and I'll post them here. Despite the fact that is not OEM it can be very useful to be able to see when the spoiler goes up. Once I had my wife standing while I was driving at 90, just to check that the spoiler works as expected (well, of course it does ).

First time I use google docs... Let's see if it works...

Wiring


This is the page that shows the wiring. The two leads from the small led light split onto 5 or so (the splitter is behind a black tube so I can' really see it) and then connects as shown in the pdf. Details of how to remove the instrument cluster etc are also included in the instructions, but I guess we all know how to do this :-)
