Your Car Companion: FIXD

When you’re driving, there’s one thing you hope to never see: the Check Engine light. This symbol often means that something is wrong, but it’s rarely clear what that is. Well, here’s a little help: FIXD!

FIXD is a small device that connects to your car’s onboard diagnostic (OBD) port. Every car built after 1996 has this port – it’s what mechanics use to diagnose vehicle issues when a dashboard light comes on. You can use it too, so you won’t have to rely on a mechanic to tell you what’s “wrong” with your car. FIXD wirelessly connects to your smartphone and tells you directly. Then, you can decide what to do!

Say goodbye to the mysterious Check Engine light and say hello to FIXD. Learn more at
