Daily Deal: FIXD Active Car Health Monitor

from the good-deals-on-cool-stuff dept

Check up on the health of your car and maybe save yourself a few trips to a mechanic with the FIXD Active Car Health Monitor. Plug it in and connect it to your phone and FIXD will read the error codes from your vehicle. It then deciphers those codes for you to let you know whether you need to act on a problem now or if it can wait. You can use it across multiple vehicles and each car’s profile will be stored on your phone, so you can keep tabs on each one. FIXD is available in the Techdirt Deals Store for $38.95.

All OBDII Vehicles are supported. Basically anything after 96 will be OBDII compliant. In addition I was curious if it will look for Manufacturer specific codes as most $30 pep-boys code scanners WILL NOT have the meaning of those and you will have to ask Professor Google.

Generic codes found here:

I wasted my money on a similar version and even paid for the app that was required to use my smart phone. It provides little more info than the check engine light does. It told me that I had an intermittent cylinder miss, but no more info, while my Auto X-Ray OBD2 scanner was able to show the O2 sensor signal that would intermittently go full lean, causing the computer to go full rich on the fuel, thus causing one or more cylinders to flood out.

These things provide little to no useful information needed to diagnose a problem, they just tell you a problem exists somewhere.
