Yea, stupid California all the mechanics got together and complained to the congressman or whatever. Its now the law that autozone can not rent out the readers because mechanics are loosing money.Go to any kragen Autozones and they will let you borrow one. It won't tell you what the code means , but you will get the code.
Ill ask next time im there, but why would they lie. Its a great service that autozone is offering, it keeps me going back to get parts from them.I just google searched this topic and found the same issue on other car forums. Anyone got a link on the actual legislation?
