Ok can I use a normal obd2 scanner or is it a scanner made specifically for the abs system? I have an obd2 scanner.

I'll have it scanned tonight. But one thing I noticed is the negative battery terminal doesn't connect snug on the negative of the battery. Even when fully tightened. I have heard of bad grounds causing the abs light to come on is this a possible cause?

Fix it and find out. Once you disconnect the battery you will have to wait for the light to come back on to read codes though.
