This is true. Most parts stores like Advanced, Autozone, Pep Boys, and O'Reilly will allow you to borrow a tech scanner for little to no charge, usually no charge. Let us know if we can be of further assistance.
Vibration in the steering wheel can also be caused by minute changes in brake rotor thickness. If you have access to a thickness gauge, check the rotor thickness at many multiple locations around the rotor. I know you said you had the rotors replaced, but they may still have minute amounts of what we call runout causing the vibration.
Also, find a shop that will perform a high-speed wheel balance with the wheels on the car. This is the best way to balance the wheel as it is installed on the vehicle, making possible the greatest reduction in wheel/tire induced vibration.
