I've got an AutoXray EZScann 5000. Pricey, but it will scan any car with OBD

if you want cheap and quick/dirty, walmart sells a code reader/reseter for 100.
www.digimoto.com sells a setup for 100, but requires a laptop. you can do alot more with the digimoto style. I should add if your electronically inclinded, you can build the digimoto setup by yourself. They even sell some of the harder to find parts of the unit. software if freely downloadable.
