Do you have a basic code reader? Does it power up off the obd2 connector? If the lights on it should show codes.

If it had a link error then you most likely have a blown fuse for the cig port.

Different guy,

Maybe a second opinion?

Maybe their scanners might work better?

Most auto parts stores will scan for codes and usually for free!

If you have them try and they are successful, write down the code numbers (not just their interpretation, which they may be dead on anyway)

Codes may be interpreted differently especially with other factors thrown in. Just saying, "It's the self destruction module" may be too vague, as there may be 12 different codes pertaining to just that one module. Exact code numbers work best when the guys here are trying to diagnose.
