All manufacturers are very loathe to give end users access to specialized tools. I'm sure there is concern about people inflicting terrible harm on themselves, but also consider that service is where dealerships make money, and manufacturers are generally well-served to protect that revenue stream for their resellers. At the same time, these tools (and the software and/or authorizations to use them) are revenue sources for the brand, so going from a singular purchase to a routine upgrade purchase to a per-use or "as a service" purchase it's a revenue stream to do the dealer. Like everything these days, it's complicated.
Security access (what is needed to marry a key to a car) is available in a variety of increments - from a car to a day to a year - online. If you have the hardware, tis2web is all you need to perform the work. You don't need anything more than a credit card. You can do that, your shop can do that. Anyone can do that.
