I had a stabiltrak code and all it was was a speed sensor got ,unplugged and I plugged it in and fixed it. There are a lot of inexpensive "less than $300." scan tools out there that would pay for them selves in just a few visits to a shop. Your $89 turns into $150 by the time they add up the fees. Don't forget most auto parts store will scan for free but they use about the cheapest scan tool they have. Even Harbor freight has scan tools that are made by Autel and cover most anything you'll need including ABS, SRS for $200. I would be unhappy to pay a shop over $100 to tell me a sensor was unplugged. If you are going to do your own repair, you need a scantool.
My $.02.
Thanks. I went to O'Riley's Auto parts and they scanned for free. Very nice scanner and printout from computer inside the store. I was impressed for about 5 minutes until I got back in my broken car.

That's good to hear, and just a few dollars spent on a scantool will be a big savings down the road.
