They don't do that anymore. Something about a state law peing passed or something like that in which they are not qualified to help diagnose the car.

Sorry to hijack the thread OP

But...

Anybody in Long Beach have a reader? Engine light came on recently, went off yesterday, and now back on again. I would like to get the codes so I know what's going on. Thanks!
