Starts in gear now!

I found an earlier thread referencing the failure to start a GSA in gear and 're-positioning' the clutch micro-switch..... The detail in the thread were great for my troubleshooting this problem.

Ultimately, the micro-switch failed an ohmmeter test as I suspected it would -- micro-switches are typical 'weak links' in electro-mechanical circuits...

Additionally, I observed in the BMW schematics at the dealership that a #8 Torx was needed to remove the micro-switch -- NOT SO! Mine was attached with a small standard slot screw; additionally, there is an alignment post on the retainer molding for keeping the micro-switch in place ('09 GSA).

Works great now - appreciate the wisdom here for pointing me in the right direction.....
