So I am on the Hunt for a scan tool or maybe even an app for Android and an adapter to pull from OBD2.

I want to be able to pull the ABS codes, normal DTC's, Body Codes and Drivetrain codes.

I maybe asking much of this for the budget I am on for this.

Reason I am looking is Got that dam service 4wd light on in the wife's '02 TB and with winter starting here once again I need to get the 4x4 working as we now have a 20mile drive to work.

I want to see if its either the switch or the BCM thats causing the issue and I figured since She will not be driving anything without a computer in it or any older then that, I best have something so I dont ...........

I emailed Actron and I got this from them....

To have all the functions you have listed in one tool you will need to step up to a Professional Scan tool. No Actron model will have all of these functions. The Actron CP9190 will have engine diagnostics on OBD I, 1.5 and OBD II vehicles but will not cover ABS or drivetrain/BCM modules. The CP9580A will read engine and ABS codes of OBD II vehicles but will have no functionality on older pre-OBD II vehicles and will not cover drivetrain/Body control. I would suggest looking at the Genisys tool from OTC model 3874 for the functions you have listed.
Yes I wish I had $2500 sitting around for a scan tool.

Well I ended up getting the actron cp9580a. The OTC 9111pro has the srs and airbags.

Funny this did pull my TCCM codes.
