2004 is possibly the worst year to program those. bestbthing is go to the splice pack near the e brake jumper the dlc straight to the TCCM. Takes everything else offline. If it has an aftermarket radio you can try disconnecting that AND any associated add on harness and try first

I had him enter the vin number in the box below the connect button then hit enter as I've…

Agreed. I believe that it's more of an accounting thing: having to support the AM just complicates their job, so they don't develop a whole bunch of successful routes to solving issues for us, and don't devote much money to it either. Probably what the law demands and little else I suspect.
