Actron CP9125 PocketScan. It's small, fairly rugged, widely available, and has worked well with all of my OBDII vehicles, including a 2004 Accord.

I also have this thing that plugs into my laptop. Bluetooth one is much better since there are no wires.

I bought this, due to it not having reviews of miscommunication with the vehicle, as lot of the others show. Can't beat it.

I got mine off craigslist. Just look for one that is reputable and make a deal for it. I got one that was 100 bucks on amazon with great reviews for only 30 bucks.

I also keep my unit in the trunk. If you get an alert, you can quickly check out the problem.

I would recommend Scangauge 2 since it can read not only OBD2 codes but also some manufacturer specific codes for SRS, IMA, ABS systems.
It's also a trip computer too with many parameters on display.
Or Torque software for a smartphone.
