Dolphin (Workhorse) DTC code reader?

I have a 2008 Dolphin on a 2007 Workhorse W24 chassis. Anyone know of a reasonably priced Engine light code reader for the Workhorse chassis. Best option would be if it will also read anti lock brake codes.

Does your chassis have an OBD II port? If so, there are many ways to go. You could buy a stand alone code reader or use a Bluetooth or WiFi code reader that you can use a smart phone, tablet, or laptop to read and often reset DTC's.

Dolphin Code Reader

I have a Innova 3040c reader, but it does not have the Workhorse in it's database so it is pretty useless. It also won't connect to the ABS system codes which is what I really need. Thanks for the reply.

I have a OBD II reader from Harbor Freight that works on my 99 Ford F53 and my 2005 GMC Yukon XL. Mine does not do ABS, had it for several years. The new ones do ABS. I don't know what the difference is with the Workhorse PCM is but OBD codes are standardized, ABS codes may not be the same. If the reader doesn't work I would take it back.

SCangauge not only reads and re-sets codes, it can be used as a full time display to give you extra engine measurements like transmission oil temp.

Following: I could not find any shop in metro Atlanta that could read WH24 ABS occasional warning light. You may get some useful info here. WH24 Check ABS???

My son lives in Birmingham so my next trip will involve my taking my RV to see Buddy @ Precision Sales and Service.
