Come to think of it, it was not the one replaced in the recall.

It was definitely the ICE fan.

I replaced the ICE Cooling Fan with the new fan and It didn't work! I got the same response as the old fan. I benched test the old fan with a 12 volt battery and it worked fine. So the problem is obviously not the fan.

It seems to me if would have to be a relay or module something. I'm looking for other ideals as to what could be the problem and would appreciate any input. The fan doesn't come on and the air condition blows warm or hot air. The ICE comes on as normal and I haven't had the warning light anymore. Still no cooling fan not working and air condition blowing warm air.

AutoZone Error Codes:

U110F
U0293 Lost Communication Hybrid Power-train Control Module
P0AE7 Hybrid Battery Precharge Contractor Control Circuit High
P1AA5

In-spite of these error code the vehicle performs well.

Just to make sure. Did you replace just the fan, or the whole Fisker OEM fan assembly with housing which has a microchip in it?

I replaced the OEM fan assembly with the housing. I got the same response as the old fan assembly which prompted me to test the fan I removed. I ran wires to the fan from a 12 volt battery and the fan worked fine.

When I turn the air condition on the fan doesn't come on as it usually does and it blows warm air.

PS I talked to Haleyguy and he instructed me on the procedure to replace the ICE Fan. The mechanic and I took over 3 hours to replace the fan. It's not an easy job!!!

You better check the Freon level in the AC if there isn’t any Freon or the Ac is low on Freon the ac compressor won’t come on . If the AC compressor doesn’t come on the aux fan won’t come on . If you turn the AC you should hear the compressor come on for a second or two and shut off if this happens check the Freon .
Have your mechanic Evac and recharge the AC

Fan is working and air condition is cold!!! No problems at this time.

Thanks Harleyguy and everyone else.

One thing that was very apparent when I was not able to used the air condition and my ICE Fan was not working is that the High Voltage Battery was given me an additional 10 to 15 miles in battery range.

I go places like downtown Detroit and back home without using the ICE and would have 10 to 15 miles still available in battery range when I get back home. It almost felt like a different battery in the car. It's just amazing how much battery range we give up for the conform that we expect.

On cool days when the air condition is not needed I now turn the air condition off and roll the windows down to enjoy the extended battery range.

One of the reasons Fisker claimed the car got 50 miles on battery is because the did the tests with the AC off .

They gave back the code readers. He said they will still change the oil and do some minor work or repairs if I drop the Fisker off for a week or so and be patient.

Does anyone know of anyone servicing Fiskers in the Michigan area?

My air condition is blowing hot air and today for the first time (6 years) my temperature warning light is on.

Hello! I’m in the Detroit area and strongly looking into purchasing a used Fisker. I understand they have there problems but is it a bad idea? Where do I get it serviced / fixed? I’d love to be a owner of one!

Thank you

I love the Fisker Karma like most of us on this board. Right now it's one of the coolest cars you can own. I purchased my car new in Sept 2012 and I had all the service and updates done, including a new high volt battery replaced under warranty. I'm still amazed when I drive the car that it performs so well after more than 50,000 miles of driving. After all these years the battery seems to have more range than when I first bought the car. I haven't notice any deterioration in performance or range.

However, if I was going to buy a Fisker Karma today I would pay whatever it cost to have someone from this board or a Fisker/Karma dealer that is well qualified to do a through inspection to determine that the car is in excellent shape. I would prefer the same type inspection that Fisker/Karma did when they sold me an extended warranty. Fisker would not warrant the car with any pre-existing condition.

In my opinion it would be a bad ideal to purchase a Fisker without this type of inspection done. A major repair or battery replacement can be very expense.

As far as where you would get it serviced at I wouldn't know yet since I haven't had any major problems in need of service since my warranty expired and the dealer in Michigan jumped ship on us.

I guest I would have to ship the car by truck to FiskerPhilly to have him to complete the service.

Another Fisker owner in Michigan sent his Fisker to FiskerPhilly by truck to have it service. Minor service like oil changes can be done locally.
