First attempt at INPA = working rain sensor!

I've been using an off-the-shelf code reader that has served me well, allowing me to read and erase engine codes related to misfiring and/or VANOS issues myself. But I wanted to see what I could learn/accomplish by getting INPA up and running.

One of the functions I came across was "Initialize" under "Karosserie (Body)\Rain and Light Sensor". After selecting that, the next time I drove in the rain I noticed a distinct difference in how my wipers behaved. When the rain was light, the wipers went every few seconds at varying intervals. When the rain was torrential, the wipers went full speed. They'd never done that before.

It's this:

Innova 3130c

It's pretty basic but does more or less what I need.

For INPA I just bought a cheap cable from China.
