Coding out annoying errors

Does anyone know of a good how to or paid coding service to remove errors? Ive had enough of seeing my parking brake malfunction light on. Ive gotten a new unit, Switch, checked fuses and still cant solve it. Only thing to do is to try and update software but that would wipe my tune. I figure this way I'd have results for sure. I recall bimmeroem.com had a service but don't see them around anymore.
Any help is appreciated

Coding out what could be a critical system warning? I'm sure it's possible but what company would invest in such a service that a litigious society or government wouldn't enjoy destroying?

Probably not. In fact, most assuredly not. To equate a parking brake to an EGR or NOx reduction system is simplistic at best. Does your parking brake even work? Have you performed any troubleshooting? I mean, besides throwing parts at it.

I dont believe even the new actuator is working and a steady parking brake malfunction light is on. Ive swapped switches, checked fuses as well as connector to the acutator all with no success. Some troubleshooting on bmw software to no avail

What part are you calling the actuator? The cables are more prone to failure than the module itself.
