I have fault code A694. When using the BMW fault decoder, it says:

Can you explain what this means and what would need to be replaced to fix the fault?

Thanks!
Fault code numbers can be checked against this web database:


https://bmwfault.codes/


From the result list take the explanation for the correct ECU, in our case "ctm_89".


You have identified the correct description and the correct location B.
It's the microswitch on top of the windshield on the right. There is only one microswitch, not a pair.


Issues with this microswitch are very very rare, so I'm wondering what might have happen to it?
Any experiments with grease, oil or WD40 on it??
