you mean something like this? (your link is dead dude...)

No. A diagnostic system will be very hard to make. You need lots of chips and timer and system clocks etc bla bla. If you are OBDII, you need a reader to do it yourself. 100$ isn't bad considering the electronics involved. A reset tool (for oil and service lights) is silly since you short out 2 pins for a certain length of time using a paperclip and it's done.

OBD I E36 BMW's have a nice trick called the gas pedal dance...
