I might be a little late but...

Illustration for article titled I might be a little late but...

Did anyone else read this? Shared on Jalopnik, I might just be too dumbfounded but I don't fully understand. Congress is going to make it illegal to go into a cars computer and read the codes? Now the first thing I think of is tuning a car, or using something like an accessport and changing a map, but to go even further than that, I think about check engine lights. I always work on my own cars or family/friends cars, I use my scan to too obviously check the code a car is throwing. Is it illegal for me to check that code? What about clear it? Am I breaking the law?!?!
