ABS Scan Capable Software

does anyone know of software for windows which will read ABS and work through an ELM capable Bluetooth OBD2 tool? I'm trying to troubleshoot my ABS issues to rule out wiring, etc.
thoughts?

There is no software that can do what via ELM. You'll need to get INPA & compatible cable.

I have INPA but no cable. I'll order one later today and hopefully have it Tuesday.
I'm itching to work on the car today and would love to finally figure out the issues with my speed sensors

Thank you

Give us an update on where got your software and cable. I've got an ABS light that needs to be turned off (replaced a window regulator and didn't have the guts to stare a live airbag in the face while I fidgeted with the other nearby electronics).

I used crafty googling to find the software and the cable is on amazon at a good price.
Here is where I started:

and the link to the cable:

enjoy
