Default Ford Tech with IDS access out there?

Anybody a Ford tech or access to IDS out there that would want to do me a solid or trade for a case of beer or something? I have an '08 CVPI that has "dark mode" enabled (no interior lights come on when the door is ajar) and apparently its a quick trip into the IDS to select "dark mode" off.

I have a top of the line Matco scanner that could/more than likely do it.

Starting in the 2006 model year, the dark car option is enabled/disabled using the ford ids laptop and vcm to connect to your vehicle and electronically alter the module preferences inside the lcm. Unfortunetly, for most crown vic owners this will mean a trip to your local ford dealer's service department. However, if you are a large volume shop, regularly want to be able to toggle the dark car feature, and can justify spending a few thousand dollars, you can purchase a vcm and the ids software subscription from www.motorcraftservice.com. For some screenshots of a 2008 ford crown victoria police interceptor having the domelights enabled with the ford ids scantool, click here.

I would say 99% sure I could do it. I have access to alot of shit with this scanner. It's pretty much like a OE tool. I know I can fuck with alot of shit on a GM.

Where do you live?

Palatine, but I'm all over the place on the weekends. Usually down in the Warrenville, Oswego, Aurora areas. Plus down in the city quite a bit as well.
