I am about as green As It Gets using a tech in conjunction with a laptop I have yet to do it. I am trying to go in and delete the security system as opposed to replacing the batteries. Is that the SPs programming feature. And can anyone point me to a video or a specific thread that might help me figure out how to get started. When I hook the tech up to the laptop under SPS mode can't seem to get it going keep saying there's an error. I followed the thread on how to set up the laptop with the tis2000 global to the letter and I'm pretty sure everything's there I think I'm just screwing up. Thank you any help is appreciated. Think I might need to take a few computer classes either that or have a few stiff drinks and just use the force .Luke I'm your father. Thanks fellas .
