Fault code reading software/lead

Probably asked loads of times before, but searching leads me all over the place.
I have a 156 1.8TS with CF3, what do I need software and lead wise to access all the ecu's including ABS and Airbag and where can I get them from (Ebay etc)
I previously borrowed a Mactools reader to sort/clear my crank sensor fault but reading what you guys have I thought having something more sophisticated that runs on a laptop may be useful
Thanks for any help

A KKL lead from eBay, which you can modify to gain access to the ABS and Airbag ECUs, or Rarebear will sell you a pre-modded and tested one.

FiatECUscan is free for most functionality, and the website has instructions for doing the above mod.

See my guide here, not everyone agrees with my method, so just use it as a reference
