    Anyone got one?
    My truck has an ABS lite and a Brake lite lit on the dash. It's a sensor, just need to know which one.
    Anyone either in Kitsap or I work in Tukwilla...
    Thanks

    I picked up an ELM327 bluetooth code reader off Ebay and bought Torque Pro for my Android a few weeks ago..

    App is $5
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.prowl.torque&hl=en

    The reader was $16 shipped.. It's bluetooth so no wires and it's powered off the car so no battery either.

    Looking at the forum it may or may not be able to read ABS codes.. Depends on the vehicle.. If not it's still a fairly awesome tool for $21..

    What brand of truck? Not all code readers can do ABS codes for imports is the reason.

    You can usually swing by any parts store and they will check the code for you

    Both O'Reilly & Autozone will lend a code reader.
    Your truck is pretty early in the OBDII scheme of things, so it'll be interesting to see if ABS codes show up.
    Please post up your results!

    You're right. it won't read it.
    But it's the rear wheel speed sensor. $25. It's on the way

    I suspected as much.
    My daughter had a '99 Hyundai and it had a dedicated connector for a specialized reader for ABS & SRS codes.
