My Check Engine Light Just Came On. Now What?

Sponsored by FIXD

Don’t just ignore it. Find out what’s wrong with your car, without paying the mechanic.

I’m thinking it. You’re thinking it. We’re all thinking it.


For anyone who owns a car, the moment that orange, yellow, or amber light comes on is a stressful one. You know something is wrong with your vehicle – but what? How bad is it? Unless you’re a mechanic, you can only guess what the real issue might be. And even if you go straight to a mechanic, you’ll end up paying close to $75 – just to diagnose the problem! Whatever you decide to do….

Don’t Ignore The Light!

The “Check Engine” light is your engine computer’s way of telling you that something is wrong. It could be something relatively small, like a missing gas cap. Or it might be something that could potentially leave you stranded, such as:

  • A failing catalytic converter
  • Bad spark plugs and spark plug wires
  • An overheating engine

The fact that there are so many options is not only frustrating – it puts you at risk of being taken advantage of by auto mechanics.

90% of Drivers Rush To Make THIS Mistake

Once upon a time, the only way to crack the check engine light code was to take it to a mechanic. There they would connect a special diagnostic machine to your vehicle – for a reading only the mechanic could understand.

This is how many drivers lose hundreds, even THOUSANDS of dollars to dishonest repair shops. Think about the last time YOU stepped into an auto repair shop: Did you go for an oil change…but leave with a new air filter, new fluids, and a tire rotation?  Or were you pressured to replace a long-list of expensive new parts that your mechanic said he “wouldn’t put off fixing” if he were you?

The truth is, without an honest second opinion there’s no way to know whether you’re being duped. That’s why so many auto mechanics call it “The Idiot Light” – you’d have to be an idiot to believe you’ll get an honest answer from them!

But times have changed. Thanks to one affordable home tool, you can quickly and easily get the diagnosis you’re looking for, without being taken for a ride.

Know Exactly What Your Car Needs In 3 Easy Steps

FIXD, an affordable new device that plugs into your car’s OBD port, quickly diagnoses its REAL problems, and translates them into simple, easy-to-understand terms!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Plug it into your car’s diagnostic port – takes less than 60 seconds and anyone can do it – no professionals or tools needed!
  2. Sync it with your phone – Using their free app (available on Android & iOS)
  3. Open the App and Press SCAN – just like that, FIXD sends your phone notifications based on your SPECIFIC make and model about upcoming maintenance, engine problems, and more!

FIXD tells you the problem in plain English.

No more looking up codes or being duped into unnecessary repairs at the repair shop – never again! You can also turn off the check engine light right from the FIXD app if the problem is not serious (e.g. you didn’t screw the gas cap on tight enough) or if you want to see if the light comes back on after further driving.

BONUS Feature: You can actually turn off the ‘Check Engine Light’ yourself. It’s quick and easy and prevents you from facing those shady mechanics to begin with!

2. See How SEVERE The Problem Is

That generic ‘Check Engine Light’ can’t tell you how critical an issue is. It only knows ‘On’ and ‘Off’ – not very helpful. But FIXD actually tells you how severe the problem is and it even tells you what the consequences are if you ignore the problem.

3. Oil Change & Maintenance Reminders

As soon as you plug FIXD in, it syncs up with your car’s make, model and its current miles. Then based on the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance timeline, FIXD sends updates to your phone when it’s getting close to take your car in.

It gets even better. Armed with this information you can now feel confident heading to the shop, knowing what needs to be done and what you should expect to be charged.

So How Much Does It Cost?

Something like this should cost a few hundred dollars, right?

Surprisingly, no.

You can get FIXD for less than a diagnostic at the mechanic – just $59. You can purchase it on their official website here.
