I can see some consumer protection idiot thinking the parts stores were "predatory" selling parts people don't need but restricting this to shops who actually are predatory is insane.

There's is right to repair movement I hope gains momentum.

Definitely a California thing. I hadn't thought of the predation / consumer protection angle, always assumed it was a lobbying effort by the repair shops.
Parts stores had always offered code readers along with the rest of their loaner tools. Then one day, poof, "sorry we can't offer them anymore". Now it's back to the way it was initially.
Unfortunately I haven't ran across a store that offers one that will pull ABS codes. But that's a whole nother kettle of GM fish.
Gravity is a fickle mistress.
