Spoiler Switch Hack Installation Question
 
I installed the manual spoiler switch on the dash over the weekend using instructions from Boxsey.com. However, the button doesn't light up when headlights are turned on like other lights on the dash. I'm assuming I can splice light signal from Traction switch to the spoiler switch. Does anyone have switch diagrams?

you wanty to splice it to the headlight switch, so that it gets light when the switch is on (when lights turn on), so that way once the lights are on so is the light on the switch.
that is how i have wired my footwell lights.
i can look and see what the fuse is that i connected it to when i get home later on if you want (i just wraped the wire around one of the fuse metal parts. wors great

thanks djomlas. but instead of going all the way back to the fuse box, i thought i could just parrell connect the power and return by using two of the wires that are already at the traction button located at dashboard. just need to figure out which wires are connected to headlight at the traction button.

ahh i see....well just pull both of the switches off, and use the power wire and stick it in the slots untill one turns it on, red in most cases so try that one first.
plus, theres not that many on there
