AutoFix – a new repair guide from Haynes for the digital age

Haynes.com Autofix

AutoFix is an all-new digital repair guide from Haynes for a new generation of vehicles, and we're very proud to be launching it in Australia and New Zealand.

What is AutoFix?

AutoFix is an exciting new product you can use on your favourite mobile device or a desktop computer. It has several key features:

  • An electronics diagnostic tool
  • Wiring diagrams
  • A mechanical servicing guide
  • Technical drawings
  • Video guides

Today’s modern vehicles come with new challenges that can only be tackled by a digital product. Electronics are a vital part of how your vehicle operates and there are more than 100,000 different variants of make/ model/ body type/ gearbox and engine – today, the first step when servicing a car is to plug a diagnostic tool into the OBD (on-board diagnostics) system of the vehicle.

So, we’re putting an electronics diagnosis module in the hands of DIY repairers for the first time. Enter a fault code and follow the instructions to test components in order, and establish the likely cause of a problem. Our tool goes far beyond what commonly available fault code readers offer and puts you, the car owner, back in control.

AutoFix already has great make and model coverage – we're adding more over the coming weeks – and it takes the help you get from Haynes to a new level. And at an introductory price of $49, AutoFix can be accessed via your favorite digital device – phone, tablet, or desktop computer – as with Haynes online manuals, you get to keep your purchase for as long as you need it. No deadlines, no pressure to get that job finished before time runs out, no stress.

What is AutoFix not?

  • It's not a printed book, not a PDF, and not a Download
  • It's not based on a stripdown and rebuilds.
  • The How-To guides are designed to give you a general idea of how to complete the task.
  • But... the data is specific to your make and model.
