[s-cars] variable servotronic

I suggest you try first a voltmeter, then an ampmeter, before you try a
potentiometer. Knowing what you deal with is the best way not to set
anything on fire.

I have no idea what kind of signal it carries and would be glad to know,

We've talked about switching the servotronic relay so that it can be 
activated/deactivated on the fly.  That's good and fun and all, but it 
didn't occur to me until today (I'm a bad, bad electronics nerd) that we 
might could put a potentiometer on that line for variable assist.  But I 
don't really have any idea how this system works electrically.  Any 
insight?  If I try it will I set something on fire?  Is it electrically 
impossible due to something about it that I don't know?

Shall we call it...

Steering boost controller?
Power steering cut defenser?
