Anyone have or know about a good reasonably inexpensive, under 100$ saturn charges 54 for diagnostic service. And I know most auto parts stores will do it for free. But I would like to have one. Thanks for your help.

The cheapest I've seen is $145 for a handheld scanner
However, you can get these for your laptop which are about $100 and do the same functions as the OBD II scanner plus you get all the internal performance and computer information displayed on your laptop
It's not under a hundred bucks, but the ScanGuageII(Google it) is a cool little tool. I have had one in my Vibe for about a year and love it. Now, I have never had to use it to diagnose a code(knock on wood) but it does read them for you. It will read most sensors on/in your engine and give you instant feedback on whats happening, and you can see how your driving style affects your fuel mileage.
It's one of the most popular and well-rounded OBD II scanners out there. Not sure where you're located, but here in CA you can fail the emissions test if the OBD system is "not ready", meaning the computer has not completed self checks after clearing a code or disconnecting the battery. This model will tell you if you're good to go or not.
I don't think there is any app available on Blackberry World that does this, but you could try sideloading Torque if you can secure a .bar file for it. However, I don't think sideload apps have access to bluetooth.
