It means that the creditor (bank or other lending institution) has decided that you're a deadbeat and doesn't think it will ever get it's money back. It also means that you've been reported to the credit bureaus as a deadbeat and that your credit score just went lower than whale droppings.

How to fix auto loan charge off?

What do you mean by "fix" it? Do you want this taken off of your credit report? Was the loan legitimately charged off? Do you still owe a balance on the loan? If you have a legitimate charge off reported on your credit report, it cannot be legally removed. If you owe a balance and the charge off is recent, paying off the balance could help. However, the charge off will still show on your credit report for 7 years, and only time will remove it. Still, if you keep your credit in good shape otherwise, the charge off will hurt you less and less as time goes by. Read more about your credit report and score in the link below.
