The code scanner that you need is called ODBII code reader with ABS, and it works in the same way as the one that you connect to the car computer module (ECU) to read codes when the check engine light comes on, but the cheap ones that you can buy from $50 do not have the ABS brake scan function.
If the problem is the ABS, then it is often a wiring to abs problem, or a defective ABS control module, a scan reading is necessary to know what the problem is.
Below few examples of Code reader with ABS:

I'd have fuel pressure checked, and at the very least, replace fuel filter. Not unusual to get multiple misfire codes due to low fuel pressure, thus starving cylinder(s), and causing the misfire code(s).

A crank-no start condition can definitely be caused by a faulty crank sensor; if after testing the crank sensor and finding it defective you will need to clear the codes and drive for at least a couple of drive cycles to see if the emission codes are legitimate or were simply induced by the failure of the crank sensor.
