Diagnostic tool for 2012 Tacoma

Does anyone have a recommendation for a diagnostic tool for a 2012 Tacoma. I am having an ABS code and my scan gauge only reads engine fault codes from the OBD 2 port.

Thanks

Thanks UTARD. Not what I was really looking for though. I have seen some of the tools for sale on ebay and just trying to see if anyone has any experience with these.

Do you mean your ABS light is on? You can't read the "code" right? A more expensive scan tool can read ABS faults. Creader makes some nice scanners for around $300 that will scan ABS.

Autozone used to rent out diagnostic tools. I think you just need to drop off your ID.

Thank you all for the input. I will research the Creader tool suggested by ntilehman.

So what happened is I nicked/damaged on of my ABS wires installing an ICON lift kit and I wasn't sure which wire was sending the code. It would have been nice just to pull the code and go right to the problem area and since I plan on having the truck for the long term it would be nice to have the proper tool.

I will follow up to this post if I find one that tests more than just the engine codes.

Oh by the way, I found the damaged wire repaired it and the fault went away.

Thanks again for the help!!!

The code would only say speed sensor.
Good job finding the wire.
