Hello, most scan tools only read engine codes, you would need to use a scan tool that can communicate with the abs module. If the light is on there should be a code stored. Since you hit a coyote with the front of the truck I would suspect an issue possibly with one of the front wheel speed sensor wires possibly being cut or damaged.

what kind of scanner and where does it hook up
Expert:  HDGENE replied 1 year ago.

Scanner hooks up to the same 16 pin datalink connector under the steering column dash area. It would have to be an antilock brake system scan tool. They can be expensive, auto parts scan tools only read engine codes for free. Probaly be easiest to have a shop scan the system unless you want to spend few hundred bucks or more on the tool itself
