Do I have to buy a code reader to read the codes off of my 97 328, or is there a way to do it with out a reader?

My rear pads are shot, and I'm about 99% certain it's just the pad wear indicator.

yes, you would need a code reader (OBDII)...THe brake lining sensor has it's own light tho. The check engine light wouldn't come on for that
