About a week ago the check engine light came on. My Karma is running fine and there does not seem any problem in charging the battery. I check the comments on the forum and I ordered a OBDII code reader from Amazon. I checked it out today and got two codes- POA80 and POA7B. It seems that both these codes have to do with some problem with the battery. Since I have the codes I attempted to erase the CEL so I would have my speedometer back. It erased for about 2 seconds and then the CEL icon came back. Should this be checked out by someone who has the Fisker software or is this another quirk in the Fisker software? Would it be advisable to do a hard reset? Thank for your input and help.

The faults originate in the battery control module which commands the engine module to throw the light. Erasing only the engine codes will not clear the battery module of codes so it will keep commanding the light to come on unless the battery codes are cleared with fisker software ot hard resset but then you losethe data of what went wrong so I'd say get it to someone with a Fisker scan tool for diagnosis.

Thanks FiskerPhilly. I'll get in touch with Lormax. It's about a 80 mile drive but that is nothing compared to Toronto and other owners!

Default POA80 and POA7B Codes

I have the same codes (POA80 and POA7B) on my car.
They popped up when I intentionally let the battery run down to 0% remaining. I did this because I wanted to cycle through some of the gas that was in the tank before it turned to lacquer.
As soon as my power meter reached 0% the CEL light came on.

And like others that have tried to clear it ...mine just keeps popping back up.

I am nowhere near a Fisker mechanic :-(

I've tried the hard reboot, at least I think I have. I disconnected the plug under the hood and waited a while before plugging it back in.
Didn't help.....

Are these codes something I should be concerned about?

Just a FYI...I'm at about 6,500 miles on my car.

Thanks,
Special K

According to google search results, P0A7B is "battery control module requested MIL" (i.e., "I, your Check Engine light, don't know why I'm on, except that he asked me to come on" with finger pointing to BCM).

P0A80 (note, these are all zeros, not uppercase Oh-s) is "weak cell fault" and on a Prius means "replace battery pack". On a Karma, I suspect it means "word-that-forum-software-replaces-with-stars, if only I lived closer to HarleyGuy or FiskerPhilly"
