When connecting to the sensor on directly through the Bluetooth menu on Android devices, You may be prompted to enter a numeric pin. Use 1234. Connecting through the Bluetooth menu is optional; the FIXD app will connect to the sensor automatically.
On iOS devices, you will see this error when trying to connect to Bluetooth Low Energy devices from the system Bluetooth menu. You do not need to connect through this menu; the FIXD app will connect to the sensor automatically.
You can leave the sensor plugged in all the time, as it uses very little power when not communicating with the app. If you leave your car sitting for more than 3 weeks, we recommend that you remove the sensor.
FIXD can only communicate with the car about the check engine light at the moment. We are working on expanding the capabilities to include service reminders, ABS, TPMS, etc. by licensing manufacturer-specific codes.
Our VIN decoder does not always recognize vehicles sold outside the USA. VINs are 17 characters long and do not include the characters I, O, or Q. If you are having this issue contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We currently support 99% of various years, makes, and models, but we are still working on adding support for a few vehicles. If your vehicle hasn’t been included, please let us know, and we will include it as soon as possible.
No, the FIXD app is free, and there are no additional monthly charges! Sometimes the App Store will ask for your credit card if you have not downloaded an app in a while. This is simply Apple, not FIXD, asking for it.
