Default CIU Issues (Central Infotainment Unit)

I had my CIU replaced and programmed in 2018. Everything was fine, then suddenly I have the following issues.

- No back up camera
- The auto window function stopped working (windows still work)
- Radio presets wiped out
- Navigation needs "activation"
- Clock defaulted to Los Angeles time

All other CIU functions work. I tried a hard reset with no resolution to the problems.

Does anyone recognize those problems? If so, what is the likely fix?

Did the car recently get wet from rain or car wash?

I had the same issues shortly after buying my car this year. I spoke with @Harleyguy and he sent me the tools to perform a reflash. I haven't had any issues since. I'm also on 535.

Send me a PM I have a tool that can fix the problem under certain conditions. The window problem isnít related to the CIU . If you lost the auto up and down you need to reset the windows . The reset is done by closing the windows all the way when the window is fully closed hold up on each window switch for a few seconds. Itís like your trying to force the window closed. Do each window and you should be good to go .

Default Help with CIU Please (to Harleyguy)

My 2012 on 535 started losing radio stations a year ago. No big deal as it was first problem in 8 years. A couple of months ago, the fan speeds and A/C started acting up. 12 volt hard resets fixed the issue a couple of times, then wouldn't. Shipped the car to Rusnak in Pasadena. They said they could fix it, but then requested extra time for a Karma Factory tech to come by and verify problem. Then quoted me $1560 for NEW type CUI module installed with Calif. tax and said they would need to order it (from So. Cal. Karma factory). The NEW module would bedifferent from mine and I would lose B/U camera and Satellite GPS in the process. Those were no big deal to me, so I said "GO". They now called yesterday to say the "CIU module' that the factory had shown to be in stock is no longer findable?! They would try looking for one?! I told them I'm on Fisker Buzz and would also try. Contacted Evoulution Auto sports and they said they had the only ones in the world and price was $3500? Seems about $2000 overpriced? You seem to be the most knowledgeable person out there and I would appreciate your suggestion/advice at this juncture.

PS: Rusnak said P/N # is C131181103002

Default More on Replacement of CIU

Got another offer from Evolution for a 'repaired module' that would not have Navigation for $1800. This seems reasonable. Input on any of this please.

It’s called supply and demand Fisker no longer makes or carries them. If you want your issues fixed then your going to have to pay what ever someone wants for the CIU . You can thank Karma automotive for throwing away the Fisker CIUs while the parts manager wasn’t there . Joe is doing you a favor at $1800.00
