Trading your car into a dealer or selling it privately?

Why remove it? Seems kinda shady. I bought a truck and the check engine light came on after a week or so. Pretty sure the place cleared it before they sold it, kinda pissed about it.

If the person found out they'd be pissed, I know I would

I'll make a mental note to never buy a car from you

Yes, it is. Im pretty sure its on a state by state basis, but I know for a fact that in Az, its against the law. The reason for this is because if the check engine light isnt functioning/removed, you're basically screwing the buyer when it comes time for emissions. Thats about the only thing you could possibly get sued for in a used car transaction, is if you neglect to tell the buyer something that will effect the licensing and or emissions of the vehicle. You absolutely have to disclose that kind of stuff, and by disabling the check engine light, you're failing to do so.

hope this helps, its no bs, atleast in my state.
