49-1629. Odometers. (1) Nothing in this chapter shall prevent the service, repair or replacement of an odometer, provided the mileage as defined in section 49-114, Idaho Code, indicated remains the same as before the service, repair or replacement. Where the odometer is incapable of registering the same mileage as before service, repair or replacement, the odometer shall be adjusted to read zero and a notice shall be attached permanently to the left door frame of the vehicle by the owner or his agent specifying the mileage prior to repair or replacement of the odometer and the date on which it was repaired or replaced. Provided however, the notice shall not be required if the odometer reading is converted from registering in kilometers to miles, and the mileage on the vehicle after the conversion of the odometer is equivalent to its mileage before the conversion. No person shall:
(a) Fail to adjust an odometer or affix a notice regarding adjustment, as required under this section.
(b) With intent to defraud, remove or alter any notice affixed to a vehicle pursuant to the provisions of this section.
(2) It shall be unlawful for any person to:
(a) Disconnect, turn back, or reset the odometer of any vehicle with the intent to reduce the number of miles indicated on the odometer gauge.
(b) Sell a vehicle in this state if that person has knowledge that the odometer on the vehicle has been turned back or replaced, and if the person fails to notify the buyer prior to the time of the sale, that the odometer has been turned back or replaced, or that he has reason to believe that the odometer has been turned back or replaced.
(c) Advertise for sale, to sell, to use, or to install on any part of a vehicle or on an odometer in a vehicle, any device which causes the odometer to register any mileage other than the true mileage driven.
