Vauxhall Fault Codes - Mobile Office

Hi Guys

I have a W reg (2000) Vauxhall Astra 1.7 DTi with the Isuzu 16v engine. My engine management light came on whilst driving home from work last night and was wondering if there was any DIY test to read the fault codes rather than being stung for a price of a diagnostic by the dealer. I am still driving it as I don't have a choice with no alternative transport until the weekend, but there is no apparent loss of power.
I recall the paper clip method that I applied to my 1995 Cavalier once, but unsure whether its a valid test on the diesels or Astras.

Cheers in advance......
