Default karma acting weird

well driving my karma yesterday on gas, (out of charge) the engine light came on blinking, not solid and would not go off. The car would run but not too fast with no pick up at all.
I charged the battery last night and the light is not blinking any more.
Has anyone else had this happen? and what could it be.

thanks ron

When that happened to me, it was a bad HV battery module and big $ to fix.

The car needs to have the codes read and yes a bad module can cause that

Sounds like misfire codes to me, if the cel was blinking. Either way, get them scanned.

Oh...all kinds of weird things happen when it's that low on energy. Full everything back up and you should be fine. Get a scan tool and reset the codes.
