Will trade beer for PA Soft help!

Anyone within a 1 hour drive of Philadelphia have a working PA Soft and cable combo and willing to let me come visit?

This is a repost I originally put in General. To be clear, I'm not looking for help getting my PA Soft working. I literally have read ALL the associated posts on how to set it up. I've got 20+ hours trying to make mine work with 2 different scanners, every procedure and forum post known to man, and a fresh install of XP with no success. I'm not willing to spend any more time on it, which is why I'm hoping to link up with someone that has a known working installation and cable.

I need to clear an airbag light and program an LCM from a different car so my headlights work. I'll bring a growler of some high quality micro-brew or whatever the hell your drink of choice is if you can help me end my misery and suffering.

Doubt you want to drive down to DC to visit me lol. Quick tips is to click "have disk" and I forget but there's something about allowing unsafe drivers for your cable. I've done the install a ton of times. You could just come down and I'll do all of it for you. I'll take a 20 instead of beer tho. Trying to stop drinking so much lol.

My desperation was to get the car inspected and I solved that problem by hotwiring the LCM. The replacement I bought was illuminating the rear fog lights instead of the tail lights so I found a pinout description for the LCM harness and swapped the tail light and fog light wires. If I make a trip to DC, I'll look you up!
