A easy way to tell if the HV battery isn't balanced out or has a possable module fault when the battery reaches 50 miles and around 20 minutes after that point the charge light doesn't turn off . The Fisker 110 charger will continue to scroll and the 220 charger charge light doesn't turn off . Also take a listen if you hear the high voltage contacts make noise when you unplug the car it's the same sound you hear when you plug the car in .

I test drove your car a couple a weeks ago at Ferrari of Scottsdale. During my test drive the check engine light was on, and the tire air pressure indicator light. I actually went back to Penske the following day, to show my wife the car and it was at Cory's shop. I went to Cory's shop to inquire about the car, and he indicated that the BECM needed to be updated. Cory also indicated that a Fisker tech was flying in to fix this issue as he did not have the appropriate equipment to perform this update. Not sure if this helps but wanted to pass it along. Your car is a very nice late Vin model with all of the updated equipment. I hope you discover that this is only a minor problem.

Good Luck,

Just as with a Fisker Karma, a newer model wife is not necessarily more reliable or even more trouble-free than the current model, and the upgrade cost generally tends to be pretty steep.

Ok. I'm going to tactfully ignore the last half dozen posts, and respond back to IDAHO1 & HarelyGuy.

I have been talking to Corey. He had it and got the techs in and did the updates. He believes that a cell balance is needed which is what the Fisker techs told him. Also, I got the tire light to go out myself when we took the front tires from 36 to 40 PSI.

Harleyguy, are you saying the that relays shouldn't make noise when you disconnect the charger? (Or are you saying that with a properly functioning battery, they'd have already disconnected earlier and one wouldn't hear it when unplugging the car?)

In my experience, modules rarely fall out of balance enough to cause range drop off and CEL. Balancing is more of a maintenance process than a repair. It is usually only"required" when a new module is installed to match it to the others. In your case, if it does require balancing, then the question is "how did it become unbalanced". A module replacement is likely inevitable in this case, but you may get away without it for awhile.

Well. I had it on my 240V charger for around 44 hours. Just drove it around 20. The check engine light hasn't come on, yet (which is basically a first since I bought it a week ago). Will have to drive it another 10 or so to see if it plummets to 0 like it had been, or if I can see a number under 20 in Stealth range. Fingers (& toes) crossed!
