2. Turn on the vehicle’s ignition.
3. Start the PIWIS 3 software on the connected computer or tablet.
4. From the main menu, select Coding/Programming.
5. Select the module that contains the option you want to change. For example, if you want to change the lighting system option, select the lighting module.
6. Select the option you want to change from the list of available options.
7. Follow the PIWIS 3 diagnostic tool instructions to make the desired changes. This may involve entering new values ​​or selecting new options from a list.
8. After the changes have been made, review the results in the PIWIS 3 diagnostic tool to confirm that the changes have been applied correctly.
9. If necessary, repeat the process for any other options you want to change.
10. After all changes have been made and confirmed, exit the PIWIS 3 software and disconnect the diagnostic tool from the vehicle.

You're lucky our mods are asleep at the wheel. I even ratted you out for hawking a competing tool. We'll see if they wake up.
