My scanner has well over a dozen different connectors for various applications. I have never scanned that particular year for an ABS light so I cant say for sure if the Solas would be capable, but it may

Ok, that'* bogus. The PMV should report specific codes for valves and other such things.

The PMV itself cannot throw a code. Can you tell us the specific code description? I've been there, done that. I'd hate to see you drop the cash for a PMV and not have it fix your problem.

ABS reports component level failures, not 'box' level.
