The Active aero on the front and rear are seperate and can fail seperately.
The rear often jams if the cables in the mechanism get stuck simply due to the grease drying up or there are two small relay switches in the mechanism that can fail so the electronics think give up trying to move and cause any damage.
The front air dam that lowers is driven off a simple motor and mechanical rod. the can jam or the motor can sieze.
both the front and rear mechanics can be removed relatively simply and cleaned which often solves the problem although it's not usually a permanent solution.
to test. turn the ignition on but keep the car stationary. press the aero switch all the way and the green light should come on and the air dam and tail should move. If the green light does not come on then I don't think you have a mechanical problem. When driving with the active aero turned on the air dam and tail will move above 45mph and reset when you go down below 25mph.
to access the front you need to remove the air dam itself from under the car. Two bolts at each end of the metal bar, two smaller bolts at each side of the air dam, two plastic clips in each wheel well and all the larger bolts directly on the bottom of the air dam. the motor assembly is on the passenger side. make sure it's not mechanically jammed or bent.
to access the reair lifft the tailgate, remove the large plastic cover trim. three nuts in the center section and two on each side. unplug the connector. close the tailgate and carefully lift the spoiler putting rags under the bolts so you don't scratch your paint. pull the connector grommet out of the while rather than pull the connector through the rubber grommet. the mechanics are simple but be careful to not change the alignment if you completey remove the motor drive unit. check the wiring, switches and that the mechanism moves freely.
testing for both front and rear can be done with the parts partially removed to look for mechanical issues.

I have been told to fix my microchips of my spolier therefore i have done this and it still does not work what elce could it be? I have also been told that it might not work because the front spolier does...


the active aero system works the front and the rear at the same time,it goes thru the switch at the center console-if the front does not work,the rear will not work also even if you replace the limiter switches on the rear wing,the rear wing has to be timed to the wing motor to work also-it is pretty hard if you dont know how to do it-good luck

What can it be


I have both a Stealth, and a 3000GT, so I guess you could say that know a bit about the platform. this sounds like one of three possible things.
  • Starter
  • Starter relay (in that funny shaped box behind the passenger side headlight)
  • "click click start" or maybe loose trigger wire at the starter
If you know anyone with a 3000, try to borrow their starter relay, it is about a 10 second swap, and you will know very quickly if it is the problem.

If the starter solenoid isn't even clicking, I am leaning heavily towards either a completely disconnected trigger wire, or a bad starter. If it is clicking, then it is most likely click click start

click click start occurs because Mitsu, in their infinite wisdom put a wire to the starter (the trigger wire) which was BARELY sized large enough to carry enough current to activate the solenoid on the starter, over time, and corrosion, the wire becomes too thin to carry enough current, so it does not fully engage the solenoid... the solution is to install a relay at the starter so the trigger wire closes the circuit in the relay from the hot power side of the relay to the trigger. The hot power side of the relay is ALWAYS on, and the wire is big enough to carry enough amperage. Thats the way I did it, you can also put the relay up by the battery, here are instructions for doing it this way, personally, I like the relay down tie-wrapped to the starter myself.

Fault with saab 9-3 aero


Hello I have a saab 9.3 SS 04 and had the same problem.

- intermittent wipe doesn't work, at all
- windscreen washers don't work, at all
- "normal" continuous, and fast wipe work, but the wipers
freeze in the middle of the windscreen if you let go of the
control stalk, rather than sweeping back to the resting position
- same "freeze" happens with the manual wipe (push down on the control stalk)

The weird thing is that, this morning, for about 10 minutes, it seemed to fix itself,
partially - the washers started working etc - but the intermittent wipe still didn't work. However not long after that it went back to the symptoms described above.
also if I unplugged my car battery for a minute the washers worked for several seconds but again same problem occurs.

Solution is to replace your wiper motor. its that "simple"
worked for me. The wiper motor has a lot of electronic stuff and seems to control the washer engine.
Good luck.
