I'm not aware of any cheap ones that will work properly. I have a cheap ELM based scanner which connects to most cars but is of very limited use. On my HDi I can at least see if there is a fault code (although I don't really trust the reader to tell me the correct code) and it will clear a stored code. This could be worthwhile to save you a trip to a garage if you have replaced the component that caused the fault.

When you say it connects to OBD port but does nothing, do you mean it physically connects but there is no communication? If so, try some other COM port settings on your laptop or alternative software - there are a few free ones that you can find on the internet.
