The FIXD Sensor plugs into your vehicle’s OBD-II port.
2) Install the FIXD Sensor
The sensor will plug into the vehicle’s OBD-II port. This port is typically located out-of-sight underneath the steering wheel. Refer to the helpful image inside the FIXD app to see common locations for this port. Once installed, you can leave the FIXD sensor plugged in while you drive.
3) Open the FIXD App
As you are going through the registration process, the FIXD app will ask for your sensor code (located on the bottom of your FIXD sensor) so that it can find it and make a connection with it. Connecting to the sensor will not interrupt any other connections to devices that you have through bluetooth. Make sure that bluetooth is enabled for this step!
Connect the FIXD App to the FIXD Sensor to begin understanding your vehicle.
Once you’ve installed the app, you are good to go!
4) You’re Good to Go!
After the FIXD app and sensor have made a connection, you are ready to start understanding your car. Open the app when you would like to translate a check engine light or see when you are coming up on maintenance. If you would like regular maintenance updates, be sure to keep bluetooth on while driving so we can communicate with the FIXD sensor in the background.
