    I'm finding cheap code readers online, and am considering buying one for
    my '96 dual cam SW2 wagon. But info is hard to come by online so far, so I
    could use recommendations. Do I need this OBD II standard, or what? Are
    there models I could use while driving? (I don't even know where the reader
    socket is yet.)

    Yes -- 1996 model year and later use OBD II.
    All of them, as long as you don't care about watching where you're going.
    Please let me know when and where you plan to do this, so I can stay off the
    road until you're done.

    Although I have access to very a expensive scanner at work, I would
    like to eventually get one to have here at home.

    I plan to purchase an Actron CP9150 Kit. Amazon.com has them for about
    $200. It does OBD1 & 2, and CAN.

    Wally World or Harbor Freight sells code readers for between $20 -$40. The
    one H.F. sells has a digital readout and allows you to clear the codes once
    they are fixed.
