Default STUCK in NEUTRAL

So 12v was dead and I had to use the key to open the passenger door. Charged the 12v and car comes on with READY and then PARK SYSTEM FAULT , appears across dash (along with a flashing triangle and ...right before the park system fault)....The car will not get out of Neutral.... Everything else comes on....The buttons you push to open the gas tank and the trunk won't work which is new and strange.... I already (thanks to this forum) tried what I think is the hard reset (unplugging for 30 seconds) . Help...Need to get it moving because it is nose deep in my garage....

One suggestion: When the battery dies, charging it does not always bring full functionality back. Try leaving the jump pack or another battery connected when you try to shift the car out of "N". Ultimately you will have to replace the battery, but you have to get the car out of the garage first.

Time to roll out the Fisker Karma signal light and hope that one of our resident superheroes will respond to the call. @Harleyguy, @FiskerPhilly, @Patrizio33, are you guys out there?

The park pawl is stuck engaged, but the gear selector thinks it is in neutral, thus it is confused due to the 12v crash. I have a way to jump the wiring at the HCU to bypass and move the motor back to neutral to sync it with the car, however it is pretty challenging. Not sure of your technical/mechanical skillset with this type of thing. Email me
jferrante@fiskerofcherryhill.net and I will get in touch with you.

I have 3 letters for you:

AAA
Premium membership approx $100 per year
Includes up to 200 miles of free tow to dealer (so does your insurance policy)

If you own a Karma you need AAA

This is not a paid ad

Well if you have any mechanical ability I suggest you go with what Fisker Philly memtioned I've had to do the same on customers cars stuck . It's just a matter of applying a ground and a 12 volt source to two wires on a connector you remove from the HCU .
The HCU is located on the passenger side. It the computer that has the three separate plugs on it and is closest to the headlamp assembly

Harleyguy, it seems a problem a lot of us may have, when the 12v battery dies. I have changed my battery, but when cars spend a lot of time stationary, my experience is that some batteries are more suited for longer time of stillstand - even applying a trickle charger. Is it possible to get a picture of which connectors you should apply the ground and 12v.

I know we all ask a lot, but for sure, highly appreciated, since I also park my car with the nose in.

Another idea: not sure if there is such a solution already, but if some owners went together and bought a PC we can ship this around in Europe, allowing for you experts to remotely hook up to the car - even with the time some difference, it should be possible to manage.

Of course, not a service for free, but mostly to be able to being able to move the car and get it driven. As of today, in Europe we only have CSPīs in mainland Europe, but for owners in the North, South it is a bit long to go, especially if the car needs to be transported.

Just an idea, if there is interest?
