  • Routine Maintenance and Service

    When taking your vehicle in for routine maintenance and service, it is important to remove Vinli prior to having a technician work on your vehicle.  This will provide clear access to your OBD-II port for your technician to run diagnostics on, as well as preventing any erroneous messages being sent from your Vinli.  

    Once completed with service, install the device as normal.

  • Why is my Vinli device beeping?

    Once you turn on your vehicle, you will hear a beep once the device makes the connection. If you are experiencing multiple beeps, this could be an indicator of firmware updates that are being installed.

    If you experience multiple beeps that don’t stop, unplug your device for a few seconds and reconnect it to the OBD-II port.

  • My Vinli is not working. What do I do?

    Make sure you have firmly plugged your Vinli device into your OBD-II port. Turn on your car and wait 30-60 seconds or until you hear a beep from the device. If you hear a beep, open the My Vinli app and check the connection under the Dashboard . While in use the icons for GPS, WiFi, LTE and Bluetooth (Android only) will be highlighted.
