    Makes the Ford 150 possessed

    Was a gfit for my Dad's birthday & this is his text after day one: The FIXD should be returned. Bad experience with it when returning from Howe rd. Turned of my ignition, headlights flashed, but restore quickly. It resets the remaining miles for the gas in the tank to an unreasonable amount. I have a lot of experience with the regular Ford data for predicting remaining MPG. FIXD sets it wrong. Also I was on the phone on Bluetooth & it disconnects any call. Julie it was a nice thought, but this one just doesn’t work correctly. I’ll drop it if at your office soon. Probably Monday. I removed it while driving due to my headlights were flashing off & on whenever it was collecting data.

    I have read multiple good reviews about this item. As I like to keep my vehicle healthy I purchased item and when it arrived everything was good. Easy installation, easy set up, followed directions everything was good. Fast forward a week later, I was setting up my tire wear, wipers battery and that's where the problem occurred. This devices claims to be bluetooth compatible, I have the s8+ and the bluetooth did not work. I never got a chance to use the clear engine so cannot comment, but for $50 why is the bluetooth not available. Instead I bout the BAFX for half the price and I LOVE it. (unfortunately for some it's only compatible with androids). But it worked better than the FIXD

    I purchase this device and was very unimpressed. it holds up to the fact that it lets you know about error codes, but other than that this device is not good for anything else. Its bluetooth capability in non existent and it ask you several times to log in your miles after you launch the app. My vehicle is 2014 this should have no issue reading the mielage from the computer, i returned this and bought an item for $20 that has better capabilities and more functionality. Do not waste your time with this!!!

    Great Proactive Dashboard to Monitor my Car

    I ordered FIXD OBDII monitor to easily track my vehicle's performance. Since my car's 10 years old, I want to stay on top of maintenance to make sure that it continues to run well. After following the easy setup process, I was able to diagnose a few issues that I can begin to take care of myself, and fixes I'll need to bring my car in for. The FIXD dashboard will help me talk with a mechanic already knowing the issue, cost, and labor needed rather than letting a shop take advantage of my situation.

    Saw this on sale for $30 and thought I would give it a shot. Setup was easy, and the app has some nice features. Haven't had any "engine warnings" come on so I can't speak to that, but it seems like the other reviews have good things to saw about it. Just know that this is strictly a diagnostic device for your engine. It doesn't have any location tracking features or show where you've driven like the Automatic Pro. It's a good buy if you strictly need a diagnostic device.

    So far so good. I like how it ca show a timeline of service, even prior to getting this device. Fortunately, my car hasn't had a problem (knock on wood) The more computerized cars get, the more I think I need this. Prior to getting this device, my car wouldn't start and I had to have it diagnosed by the dealer. Turns out it was a dead battery, I had to pay for the diagnostic and a batter. Over $400. This is worth it.

    I've used an OBD2 scanner before, but this one is even better. I love that it connects to your phone and if you leave it plugged into the car, whenever the car turns on it sends any new codes or anything that pop up on that car. I also like that you can connect it and register other cars to the unit. It's very handy. I didn't think it would be able to reset codes but I'm glad it does that also

    It works pretty good. It doesnt have instructions. Only on how to set it up so it took a while to figure out the basics. If you just need something thats quick to install and just give basic info on whats wrong, then this works great. One thing thats pretty cool is you can leave it plugged in as long as you start your car every 3 days since it runs off the battery. But for a basic quick check its good

    My car was showing an engine light, and this told me the exact code. That was the initial reason I bought it was the engine code, but this also performs battery tests which was crazy helpful. The app for it is pretty cool too as you can get live stats (fuel gauge, speed, etc) which is useful if your gauges ever go out!

    Awesome! Super Useful Scan Tool!

    This is a really great way to diagnose your check engine light without having to go to a dealer/shop. Sometimes they charge $60 to $80 just to tell you what's wrong with your car (and they are not always right). With this handy OBDII scan tool, along with the Fixd App (Free), you can know lots of information about the problem/error codes BEFORE you go to the mechanic. I highly recommend!

    Within 10 days, diagnosed a check engine light as a bad upper O2 sensor. I replaced the sensor and reset the engine light using the phone app. Problem solved without having to pay tech $75 for same info. Also like getting the email regarding the error code and problem.

    Payed for itself the first day. Scanned my 2013 Sonic, identified a bad thermostat housing. Watched a YouTube video on how to fix it, bought the part, changed it out in a half hour. Saved $200 in labor at a repair shop. Sweet. Have used it on all the families cars, nice when it finds a code, but even better when it does not.

    I recommend FIXD for anyone who needs to see why they have a check engine light WITHOUT going to the mechanic. I feel like we’ve all been ripped off once or twice at the mechanic before so this gives you a bit of power in your decisions now. Works well for me!

    The FIXD device has allowed us to complete a few minor repairs at home. Obviously it is not as comprehensive as a mechanic’s diagnostic machine, but I’m so glad to have something similar for my own use! This was a great purchase.

    This product is something! Its really neat! I was able diagnose my check engine light without any hassles. All I needed was to replace my O2 sensor. The mechanic told me I needed a new cat converter because of the way it is. Guess I am not going to that mechanic anymore! You guys rock!

    This is a good device to have in a vehicle especially when you suspect something or the engine light is on. Only issue - it wouldn’t reset after fix was made. My oil change mechanic did that for me.

    Setup couldn't have been easier, no car knowledge or tech skills needed. I like that the app shows upcoming maintenance so I budget car expenses. I can also log notes and recommend when I should change my battery and tires. App works perfectly on my Pixel 2.

    Great gadget, allows me to know what the problem is that turned the check engine light on. Helps me know if the problem is serious and can wait for service. Also let’s mechanic know I know what the problem is and what it should cost to make the repair.

    This is a neat little gadget. You can attach it to the computer in your car and find out where the problem is when the engine light goes on. Let's you know whether the mechanic is trying to rip you off or not. I have used it twice already with great results
