Spoiler question

Does anyone know how to deactivate the spoiler without the dash light coming on at 75+ mph?
I tried pulling the fuse: got the light at 75
I tried disconnecting the wiring at the spoiler motor: still got the light.
For those that want to know why, I've got the after market fiberglass wing, and yes, it is starting to crack at the mounts.
Just to make things a bit more interesting, I know that on the Aerokit I and II, the decklid is fiberglass and extends down to the edge of the bumper, eliminating the speed activated spoiler...there must be some way to deactivate the assembly without triggering the light.

You need to order this part# 986-612-981-23, cost about $16.

Then follow these intructions, takes about 10 min to do:

5.6.2 Remove the rear luggage compartment lining of the rear luggage compartment and unclip the 6-
pin plug connection to the drive of the retractable spoiler (located to the left of the lock on the
bottom of the retractable spoiler carrier).
5.6.3 Disconnect the 6-pin plug connection and establish the plug connection with the 6-pin cable link.
5.6.4 Clip in the 6-pin plug connection onto the bottom of the carrier again.
6. Concluding work.

Let me know if you need any help when you get the part.

I added a wing as well

I've never had the car over 100 for any length of time;
I've never noticed any difference at any speed.

I did 120mph + the other day, feels fine. Gives good down force in the rear. The test is really on curves doing high speeds I would think. Have not tried that yet
