When you say they cant scan it, does this mean there scan tool will no communicate with the data link connector, if so have you check the fuse to see if its blown and ther eis no power at the DLC?

Have they checked the power at the data link connector to see if the fuse is blown or tried a different scan tool to see if there tool is just not compatible?
