New Switches now what?

I bought some new switches for the upper center console. One is for operating the spoiler manually and the other is a garage door switch. But for now I just have the buttons and no idea what else I need to make them functional. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Got them from Suncoast...




Thanks,

Tim

I have instructions for the spoiler hack on my website (in my signature). It is a really simple hack. Good Luck!

Another alternative for a garage door opener hack.

I"m always impressed on how people come up with this stuff.
