Well actually those autozone scanners will probably not be able to pinpoint the problem.
I have one of those simple scanners. When I scanned my friend's car, it found bunch of codes including one for wheel speed sensor, one for tranny etc. But then we took the car to an indy shop. There they used a laptop to diagnose the car and they found that the ABS module was defective. Once the module is bad it causes several codes to show up.
If it was me, I would first try to check the wheel speed sensors and see if any of them defective. Checking is not very difficult but not very easy either (at least time consuming).
Then try to find an indy shop with a proper diagnostic tool to scan it. You have time; driving the car in that condition will not hurt anything. I drove mine for about 2 months before getting it fixed.
