Make sure you get a code scanner that does OBDII, CAN, and ABS. A lot of transmission shops will charge you a service fee to retrieve codes (~$75 - 100), so buying your own code reader makes sense, however the better ones can be $200 or more. You could also try Autozone or Advance for a free code scan.

Autozone is an expensive place to buy a scanner lol, Harbor Freight is cheaper, or Amazon or even Walmart has them.
