What kind of crap is this? That's a dumb statement. They are a parts
store - not a repair facility. If you want to clear your codes, buy a
reader so you can clear them, or take it to a garage. Or - for some codes,
give it enough cycles and it will clear itself.

Id like to recommend this above post please.
Im in indiana and auto zone does it all the time. Ive never had a problem
with them saying you cant. So why would a state have a beef if they
cleared your codes???
I better break/fix something so I can rush down and see if they will still
clear codes <grin>.
Mike pointed out the facts to you. If you read what he said, it is quite
helpful. Did you know that the code will clear itself, if given enough
driving cycles? Did you know you can buy code readers at parts stores?
Why should he buy a code reader? I's (apparently) his RIGHT to expect
someone else to to pay for the reader, as well as someone else's
responsibility to provide free diagnosis. Wonder if he gives away
whatever it is he does for a living?
I am in Ontario Canada, and I do not know of any place that even read's the
codes for free. Most places like Canadian Tire (basically USA's AutoZone)
will read them for around $90. As for clearing the codes, from what I know,
they only clear the codes if you either pay them to fix the problem(s), or
if you pay the $90 again. That's why I went to Wal-Mart and picked up a
scanner. Not the best on the market, but between it's readings, and the
information from this group, it does the job nicely.
