Where to read abs codes?

Need some help since I have the yellow brake, yellow ABS and yellow Traction Control light on for some time now..im assuming its a wheel sensor but who knows.

Tried to go to autozone since i heard they read for free, apparently they dont read abs codes. Same for firestone.

Trying to avoid paying dealer diag fees.

Go to the nearest Pepboys and take advantage of the free diagnostic, it will take you 15min and its free, they will plug the computer in and will give you the list of ABS codes. If you have a JB4 make sure its off on map 0 otherwise they wont be able to read anything, and it will drive them nuts

I had the same issue as you are having right now... Autozone can only read engine codes apparently. They told me any major repair place should be able to read the codes. If no pepboys around try calling another place doing standard maintenance
