CTEK 4.3 MUS Error Lamp (!) Step 3

Today being Wednesday I charged my battery with my CTEK 4.3 MUS. Two times the charge ended at Step 3 BULK with a red Error Lamp (!).

Poop, I thought.

I had also been extremely cleaning the inside of the windshield at the same time. (Extremely with 100% ethanol on a microfiber cloth on a windshield paddle tool.). The passenger door not latched - that I did not notice - evidently caused the error.

I tried to set security and got no confirmation BEEP, then noticed the partially shut passenger door. I shut and latched it and restarted the charge that finished properly.

CTEK errors at Step 1,2, or 5 suggest a failed battery requiring replacement.

Was that an FYI?
Also, about the wiper tool, doesn't that limit the reach between the dash and shield?
