    Inpa only reads, not code, so won't damage anything.

    In general I gave to agree that INPA does read errors but technically you can reprogramme the EWS sync which in effect can immobilise the car to the key
    Obviously you can resync it but my advise to the OP is if you're not 100% sure don't press 'enter' when prompted.
