The check engine light analogy also doesn't fit because consumers can buy their own diagnostic tool for about $20 that will read the check engine light codes.

The perspective of @gharnett5548 might make sense from an installer's standpoint, but it doesn't make sense from the customer's standpoint. Why should a customer have to call in a professional installer every time they want to make some minor tweak to the programming of their remotes? Although not every customer is tech-savvy, many of them are quite capable of handling remote programming themselves. I guess URC has decided who they most want to please.

Reading CEL is different than system programming. I have 3 scanners that can read the codes on my Porsche, but the dealer ONLY software that is required for a lot of programming, such as new key programming and airbag activation/deactivation just to name a couple, are not available on any consumer scanners. What gives, I'm perfectly capable of programming these. My Porsche costs a hell of a lot more than a remote control, why can't I have access? People of to stop acting like URC is someoanee that is the only company on the planet that limits access to software. It's literally everywhere
