Best Diagnostics Code Reader?

Which is the best diagnostics code reader for a 2001 Odyssey? The Check Engine light is on for the 2nd time and I don't feel like paying 60 bucks to have it read and turned off again.
Btw how do you turn the CE light off after reading the code? Can the reader turn it off or do you jump something?

Go to Autozone and have them read the code and clear it for you. I have a 1999 that does the same thing. My problem is with the catalytic converter not reading completely clear, but even the dealer says to ignore it until the car starts running rough. Autozone has a low cost device that can plug in and then reset the code each time. It costs around $60.

Depending on your state. I know in Oregon you can go to Knechts or Napa and they will plug your car in and get the code for free.
I am with the dealer. If teh car is driving well, then there is nothing to really worry about. Now, with all of the sensors located throughout the engine and all of these being attached to a computer, you are bound to get check engine lights on very often. In fact, Honda even has a check engine light for low pressure in the gas tank, which can occur if teh gas cap isn't quite snug enough for the computer. Don't worry unless it is needed and the car is running poorly.
