My Ride: 2002 M3 Vert
Error 34 - VSW 4.2 Input at Ground

My '02 M3 Vert had the common stopped closing at about 1" above the windshield header issue. I locked the header manually with a drill and Allen socket. I spun it until the light went out, it didn't seem obvious when to stop.

It doesn't do anything at this point so I fired up INPA and got:

1 static error
34 - VSW 4.2, input at ground

I am leaning towards this being a cracked wire going towards the header that is well documented here. Didn't see this error in any of the threads. Any other thoughts before I do resistance and continuity checks on the wiring over the weekend?

When mine did this very exact same thing, it was the GREEN wire in the bend point that needed repair.
