Suggestions on OBD + ABS Scan tools needed

Having more issues with ABS and SRS and I'm sick of taking it to the shop to diagnose and double check repairs.

Does anyone have a scan tool that will read the ABS and SRS codes on their '12+ JK?

I'm looking at this one on Amazon:
https://www.amazon.com/Topdon-Univer...+scanner&psc=1

Says it reads Chrysler codes but not specifically Jeep (although I think I'm safe to assume they're the same). I'd like some other suggestions of one that you have and KNOW work. Thanks!

Have you tried torque pro on your phone and a Bluetooth​ OBD scanner?

And torque pro work great on all makes and models! I used the free version at first and it saved me so much money that I felt I should pay for pro

As a side note, you may need an android device. You can always pick up an old one on eBay if you needed and just use it on wifi

I bought the Innova 3100 OBD Scanner a while back at Checker Auto parts . Great tool, aside from standard functions it has emissions, plus ABS. Definitely comes in handy....

I recently bought the Autel AL619 scan tool and it works great. It does allow you to access the ABS codes. You can read them and clear the codes with this scan tool. It costs $108 at Amazon.

I have the same model. I use it on friends and family's vehicles along with my own. It's saved huge money on unnecessary repairs and gives peace of mind.

I have one! Great little tool and it's nice to see all of the readouts live. Pulled plenty of engine codes with it. However I haven't been able to find one that can read ABS/SRS codes.

Just a follow-up for anyone else looking for one of these:

I went ahead and ordered the one I linked. I can say it absolutely reads the ABS codes and all of the diagnostic stuff. Being able to record info during a drive is nice too if your problem is happening intermittently, but I believe that's a fairly common feature among these things. The updating was a little finicky and took a few tries but it works!

I use the BlueDriver, $99 on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/BlueDriver-Bl...4TS/ref=sr_1_1

I've not had to read an ABS code, but I know it does check the ABS system when it scans. It also is able to read the air conditioning and some other systems.
