you can buy a obd2 to usb. but then you need the software as well. and it gets pricey, i think the cheapest i found the cable for is around 50. and the software im sure you can get it online somewhere for free. but i havent looked. i heard it can run 300+.

if you find any of it for cheaper. let me know.
