Upon disconnect the drain went away. The solution for repair is to replace the damaged(wet) CIU. Cost approx. $3800. Option # 2 is to seal the water leak and clean the CIU with electrical cleaner-(much cheaper option however no guarantee on how long the CIU will perform. Cost for option # 2 $1300. Please contact me with or questions or concerns. Thanks"

RUN dont WALK away from that dealer... this has nothing to do with flashing ready

Check out this thread: Water leak prevention with silicone.

You should also check the black windshield seal running under the wiper blades. These were not sealed properly at the factory and can be another source of leaks. PM me and I'll provide the sealants I used to fix these issues (cowl and windshield) if you want to tackle it yourself. It's not a big job.

In any event, I would take the car (or send the CIU) to a Fisker Automotive Service Provider for second opinion about the unit.

For the cowling you can use 3M Clear Auto Sealer #08551 . It's a high-quality, general-purpose sealer for temps up to 200 F.

(I used a silicone sealer that works up to 500 F only because I had it lying around. Check out Amazon for the high-temp stuff if you want to go that route, but it's probably overkill.)

For the windshield weatherstrip, I used 3M Yellow Super Adhesive #08001 . It has held up well for several years.

I spoke with this owner and he actually has two problems going on . He seems to actually have a CIU fault and 535 caused his blinking ready light.
