Your car requires the use of a scanner for OBD 2 systems. A good scanner will cost app $100. There are more expensive ones but its all about how much you want to spend and what you need the scanner to do. The more expensive ones can also scan other systems such as ABS system and can be updated. I don't think the do it yourself would need this. Before purchasing make sure it is suitable for you car.
