Well its not quite as easy as a direct link between car and PC.
You need a convertor inbetween to take the signal the car uses and turn it into data a computer uses.
The most common home one I think is the elmscan 5. This has all to protocalls for all makes of cars so you can help your mates out as well.
You can get single protocall devices that work on certain makes for about £60.

The elmscan sells for around £90 with the cable and software.

One can be found here: Scantool Elmscan5 USB package

Hope that helps.
