Unhappy Aircap help please

the aircap on my 2014 E550 goes up and down every time I stop at an intersection. It has a sensor somewhere that relates to speed and when you are going fast enough it opens, when you stop at an intersection it lowers, and every motion is accompanied by a whining noise. I want to override the speed sensor so when I press the button it opens and stays open because the whine is annoying and I think all of the up and down may make it fail prematurely.
Does anyone have a solution? The feature is awesome and especially nice in cool Wisconsin weather! Can I just disassemble the switch area and find an ignition hot to supply the switch with constant non speed related power? It would also allow me to open it to clean road fuzz and bugs off the screen
