Don’t let the instructions intimidate you to set up. It is super easy and the prompts guide you through it.
i think your online feature is the problem, or, the device is the problem. 1. I have a new throttle body, the Subaru mechanic specialist for this model year, on the rebuilt engine. It wasn't that, so I looked at the air filter. It was that, so I put in a new air filter. ..problem solved. The idle, however, is screwed up. This happens ONLY when I use the FIXD device. No, it isn't something else: new OEM header, new full OEM exhaust system with two new OEM CATs and two new Bosche OEM O2 sensors and new OEM muffler. The vehicle had been at a "salvage yard". I purchased it, because the engine is a rebuild. 2. There is no way to tell the app the odometer does not indicate it needs major mechanical maintenance. It has a rebuilt engine.
Great device, helps me keep the car running fine.
Until recently, my car has been relatively trouble-free. Lately, however, I’ve run into a few problems. It’s nice to know that when that “check engine” light comes on, I can instantly find out what the trouble is. It’s helpful to know if the problem is imminent disaster, and should pull over and call for a tow, or if it’s one of those things where I can still drive, but get fixed soon. In my particular case, I had coil packs go bad, and I was able to tell the mechanic “I have a misfire on cylinder 2”, and have him wonder how the heck I have such specific info! At least my mechanic is trustworthy. But this could be a lifesaver (or at least a wallet saver!) for someone going in blind. An unscrupulous mechanic can turn a vague “check engine” light into a gold mine.
My wife’s car showed an engine trouble light. FIXD identifier it as an engine coolant sensor problem. We called the dealer with that info and they told us to have it towed in. Their diagnosis showed the same and the problem was fixed in a couple of days. Without FIXD my wife may have driven the car to the dealers which could have been catastrophic. FIXD advised not driving, as did the dealer.
Great idea but not implemented very well.
I purchased two FIXD devices for the special discounted price of $89 approximately a year ago. In conjunction with the free app and online processing of the data to interpret the trouble codes, it was easy to understand. Used it a couple of times to diagnose troubles and it worked well. Just tried to use it again only to discover that the online service necessary to diagnose the codes now requires a subscription of $7.99 monthly or $59 annually. That was not part of the original deal. To continue using the sensor, I would now need to pay as much for the service EVERY year as I paid to buy the sensor! If I was a mechanic using the system regularly that might be acceptable. But for someone who might use the sensor a couple of times a year, that is completely unacceptable and I would argue unethical since it was not part of the purchase agreement. Save your money to pay the mechanic who is going to actually fix your problem!
I bought the plug-in diagnostic hardware hoping it would assist in identifying issues and keeping mechanics honest. Unfortunately once you connect it, the app basically will tell you if there’s an error code, but doesn’t give you any useful information or tell you anything about the code unless you buy their upgraded annual service for $60. They then want you to schedule service with their mechanics, who they likely charge affiliate referral fees. I googled the error, talked to a friend and handled myself. I won’t be using this again, waste of $$
Transmission Code saved me over $600. My warrantee was about up and I just periodically check and do a quick scan every month. A transmission code came up but didn’t trip any warning lights on my car. To make long story short there was a major problem and the repair was covered barely before the 60,000 cutoff.
I purchased FIXD thinking that it should work at least as well as the ones you purchase at the auto stores. However, when I used it on my 2002 F-150, it said that no warnings exist even though a clear ABS warning was present. When I borrowed a code reader at the store it told me I have an ABS circuit problem. I am very disappointed in the product.
