Default P0246 Wastegate Solenoid High Voltage

Hey all - We have an MSM, stock, driven for autocross only.
About a month and a half ago the CEL came on: P0246 - Turbocharger Wastegate Solenoid 1 High Voltage

The car runs fine, and seems to boost fine as well from what I can tell - though I suppose it may just be on spring pressure now?
Is this a common issue, and is it likely actually a bad solenoid?

Thanks!

No point in hoping, test it and find out. Check the harness for 12v, the negative will
come from the ecu. Then give the solenoid 12v and a ground from a battery, and see
if flow starts/stops

I literally just googled that code and the very 1st hit is:
If you remove the stock Boost Solenoid, you'll get a P0246 CEL.
