Have a look on this web site ELM327 Software USB Plastic OBD2 II Can-Bus Car Diagnostic Scanner Tool V1.4 - Tmart.com I have the same unit which came with software which I got on Amazon for about 14, they are offering it for 10.33 free postage. There are other units available including stand alone and bluetooth but the cheap stand alone units tend to be rather basic with restricted abilities. Its worth having a look at the other items on offer, I have recently purchased a Pentax camera infra red remote for 1.77 inc postage. Most if not all the electronics that we buy comes from the Far East so you might as well take advantage of the cheaper prices, it will take a little longer to get here so if you are in a hurry have a look on Amazon. I can recommend the item it works pefectly, it is unlikely that it will switch off the abs fault without extra software but you should be able to get that with a search online I have obtained a lot of extra software that way. It should be noted that if the fault is still there the EML will light up again.

Autop D900 Scanner
AUTOP D900 CAR DIAGNOSTIC FAULT CODE READER SCANNER PRO OBD SCAN NEW VERSION!! | eBay

I got one of these 2012 model for about 27, Connects to my 53 2.0 TDCI and reads out the errors.
I found with the 2.0 TDCI engines on the cmax is a bit of a grey area on Ford Diagnostic's. I guess as it was a new engine, the engine managerment was out sourced! Only the newer models are supported by diagnostics (Ford F-super)

I agree blunder, the D900 is an excellent piece of kit for the money, used it on various cars & its connected everytime. Mine came with a nice hard plastic case.
