Can anyone program an 04 ecu to delete the immobilizer and alarm or offer a non-immobilizer start option, normal ignition sw

I just picked up a near junk 04 mini copper, fully loaded, girl still owes $4k on it, as a first car for daughter. It ran fine two weeks ago but then starter went out. It was towed and couldn’t be started. When connecting battery alarm sounds, click remote 4 times, and can control door locks only. No start, no windows etc. I replaced starter, upstream o2 sensor, fuel filter, accessory belt, ignition coils, wires, valve cover gaskets, brakes etc. I am ready to do oil and cvt filter, gasket and want to warm up the car, but turning key nothing. Dealer says a min of $400 to reprogram ECU. I call bullshit.

anyone have tools to reprogram Ecu to work without immobilized? BMW made these little cars far too complicated.
