Vocabulary-"stimmt

I find it difficult to translate any sentence which contains the word "stimmt." duo's definition=attunes; is/are attuning. google's = agreed, Right enough. Each sentence in which "stimmt" is used, seems to use it in an entirely different context. "Mit Ihnen stimmt doch was nicht." The nearest I can come to a definition for stimmt is "right" or "correct" does anyone have a better grasp of how this word is used or a more comprehensive definition????

It seems to me that "stimmen" as a verb means "to be correct". But then there are several phrases that have this meaning in English, depending on whether you're talking about a fact, a bill, a radio, etc.. I think this is a characteristic of English - it tends to have several words which mean something similar, which German translates to only one word. I have an impression that Italian has even more variability.
