I researched this.

There is no such law.

There 'is' a reason though ... and it's in these threads:
- Which states make OBDII scanning illegal by the auto parts store? Why?
- In California, what establishment do you use to read OBDII codes for free?
- Cheapest CAN OBDII scanner on the net that reads DTCs, pending codes, & clears codes
- OBD II PC freeware & $15 J1962 cable for the BMW E39
Please read the suggested threads, where the best always add value to those threads, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person with the same problem stands on your shoulders.
