Bill to lock out aftermarket under consideration in California

From AAIA Capital Report

Legislation is under consideration in California that will indefinitely extend an exemption granted to certain European car companies from meeting requirements to provide access to key codes such that consumers can obtain convenient and affordable replacement keys as well as perform many security-related repairs.

Under a law enacted in the state in 2006, vehicle manufacturers were required to make security information available to the vehicle owner through a licensed and registered locksmith for all 2008 model year newer vehicles. At the time, certain European car companies requested and received a temporary exemption from the law due to the issues that would occur through changing their system for replicating keys by the 2008 model year. That exemption is due to expire on Jan. 1, 2013.
