Well it finally happened - my first hard reset
I suppose it had to happen sometime. I'm an original owner and use my Karma as my daily driver. After four years and nine months of reset-free driving I finally had to do my first hard reset. I was out to dinner last night and leaving the restaurant I got the "flashing ready" indication. Several rounds of soft resetting didn't help.
Thanks to this forum I know that the flashing ready seems to be an occasional side effect of the 535 update, and of course there have been countless discussions of how to hard reset. So I broke my streak: I popped the hood, disconnected the reset cable (after a couple of minutes fumbling with it to remember how), let it sit for 30 seconds and reconnected. It started right up.
I'm glad we have this forum so that I knew what to do. I can only imagine that a less informed Karma owner might be typing a different post as they waited for the flatbed trailer.
