INPA: EWS Errors

Car: 1999 323i

Recently installed INPA, finally got around to checking the different modules with the program. When I checked the error memory from the EWS, there are four errors stored. Slightly concerning to me. Have had the car for two years and it starts and runs fine aside from the "can of marbles" sound the VANOS unit is making.

Can I safely clear the EWS error memory with INPA without fear of the car not being able to start afterwards? Only have one key for the vehicle too, and am not sure if it is # 1 2 3 or 4.

Output is in German, so I used a translator, this is what the EWS error memory shows:

Not sure what they really mean either.

Go ahead and clear it. It won't hurt anything.
