What you trying to read different systems require different readers. Abs one type, SRS another type and obd another. Make sure your ignition is turned to run but not start. I have several scanners and scan lots of vehicles. Get back to me if you need more help

Where to start working with technology to be a modern mechanic

Scanners are just the better equivalent of code readers, but having live stream data functions so you can see real time sensor information displayed. There are a lot of good quality scanners, whatever your budget can afford. In the U.S., $200-$250, maybe a bit more or less, will buy a useful scanner.
You will definitely need a Digital Volt Ohm Meter (DVOM) for all manner of electrical testing. Get a good quality one with low impedance properties, so the meter doesn't throw off your test figures. When you buy one and read the manual with it, you will understand what I mean. Not sure I can explain it properly. Get the meter and learn its functions and how to use it.
There must be hundreds of websites that explain trouble codes. Just use a search engine-google that.

P1135 error code

The code your showing in a faulty o2 sensor, bank 1, sensor 1. Its the sensor between the exhaust manifold and the catylitic converter. Can be difficult to change. If your doing it yourself, I suggest spraying it with WD-40, or PB Blaster for a while before attempting to take it out. Hope this helped, let me know!

The VATS system has 15 possible ohmic variations in the key .One might use an ohm meter and measure the resistance in your key as this is simply a resistor producing an ohmic value which must match the resistance value the VATS module wants to see. There is a 2 wire key reader in the ignition cylinder that sends this signal to the VATS module looking for a match.One may surf the web and see ways to bypass VATS but I have never tried this and its is fairly sophisticated process which requires an accurate DVOM meter that reads OHMS
