My 2011 Xterra is some some angry dash lights (ABS, SLIP, ADC, BRAKE) which usually indicates that one of the wheel speed sensors is upset. Or maybe the steering angle sensor. Or maybe something else. You see where this is going. My current code reader (Bluetooth OBD2 reader w/ Torque app) doesn't see the ABS codes I need to diagnose the problem. What would the hive recommend for a code reader that can pull those codes?

Apparently the ones at AutoZone can pull those codes for me, but I should probably own the tool myself.

I bought a Launch scanner from Amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07RLF8FBC?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details

Seems to work well on my 2003 Vette and a 2012 Kia

I have a Foxwell 510 Elite scanner that I've been happy with. You can add manufacturer-specific software to it, and that's seems to work well (I have the Honda and Toyota software).

I got one of these when the airbag light came on in the wifes van.  It does airbag and ABS codes.  It does the job reasonably well for the price.

Sweet, thanks all. This Xterra is by far the newest car I've owned so these scanners are brand new territory for me.
