Hi Fabulist,

on the prior page (15) it shows the key ofb and says:

---------------------
The buttons on the key fob operate as follows:

1. Key Fob Lock: ...
.
. Press once, then press and hold the lock button for two seconds to activate the remote pre-conditioning feature. The lights will flash twice; one short and one long, to signal successfull activation.

-----------------

Actually I do have some hope in this since it is an original feature as described in 5.17 in Fisker Karma user Manual.

To make sure that my prior experiment is still valid under Software Version 520, I shot this video (https://youtu.be/YY-66j0xhYI) today and in the last couple of seconds, you can clearly hear the fans working with the car asleep.

Couple of points: I am running a newer Beta version of the CIU software which does not have the “Remote Start” or “Preconditioning” option, and I have no way of setting that option. I also only pushed the lock button on the fob only once. At least in my car, it seems that the solar-powered cabin exhaust is always on by default.

I Wish we knew someone with a Revero to see if this function actually works.
Anyone? Anyone? Beuller?

I’ll have to search... I thought I saw a person on the forum that purchased a Revero.

Hi @Fabulist,

I have beeb driving the car in bright sun for over an hour now... (running BL520)

No changes in the roof graphs as shown in the one youtube video - which was pretty clear - I mean the solar roof recognized bridges...

No chance to turn the fan on in any way, so far

My guess - solar roof output issue...

Any ideas for a next step?
(need to check the connections)

If you are not seeing any solar output on energy flow screen, there is most likely a break somewhere in the wiring. I went looking in the manual to see if there is a fuse associated with the solar roof, and in true Fisker Karma style, encountered a mystery. Fuse 27 is labeled as "Solar Roof" and there is no description for fuses 41 - 45 (Pages 7.19 - 7.20 of the English Manual Linked here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/74...age=113#manual) Maybe @Harleyguy, @FiskerPhilly, or @PowerSource can shed some light (pun intended) and also on how to check the wiring for the solar roof.

Thx Fabulist,

will check and see if one of the three (parties) can be of help.

The solar roof fuse is Nr. 27.

But I‘ll check for 41- to the others.

The guy who did my TOM can probably help check the wiring.

Best & thx
Christoph

Thanks, totally missed fuse 27. That should give you a place to start. Good luck.
