Default Fisker broke down, towed, need help...

Unfortunately I’m back with another major issue, last night while going out to dinner, my karma just shut down at about 60mph with the reduce performance error, all miles and battery life dropped to zero, rolled into a parking lot a quarter mile up to street, car will not drive, gears only go to park and neutral. After a few reset attempts on the side of the road, the reduce performance went away and now it says car has 260 miles range and 11 battery with a flashing ready, it was only 120 total before the issue. Prior that day I was getting a lot of misfires, oil change, bulb failure and washer fluid which were all recently changed turned it to sport aswell for nearly 5 miles. Today I was able to get it towed successfully back to the house, car will still not turn on and car will not charge, attempted to put the charger on the car it did the click, then immediately clicked offer and afterwards kept doing a strange click on and off until the charger was pulled out, now when the charger is plugged in I get no sound, no click, no charge. I tried to power the car on, it goes to green but ice doesn’t seem to kick in but it makes this awful high pitched noise inside of engine bay, I have recorded a video and uploaded to YouTube.

This is my daily driver and I love this car... really need to know how to proceed to fix this, thoughts are maybe it’s the coupler? But why would the battery not charge? Miles currently 30,600 check engine light has been on for a week prior but no driving issues at all

What’s next? Thanks everyone. Forums a life saver...

By "reset", I assume you mean you unplugged the big black plug and left it unplugged for several 5-10 minutes...?

misfires most of the time is a coupler issue. The high pitch sound probably coms from the pump in the front with the reservoir with the blue fluid. I had a similar thing at a hot day and the car was plugged in after pressing the start button. At that time my blower motor was burned due to water intrusion, but that is probably not your problem. After a hard reset it is normal the fuel stays at maximum until you start the ice, then it drops to the actual fuel level. I don’t know why the car doesn’t charge. I hope one of the technicians on the forum knows...

The high pitch more than likely is the power steering pump. The least of your problems right now is the charging issue .
You need to do a hard reset if the green ready light is flashing your car won’t go into gear or run.
After you do the hard reset see if the ready light is still flashing if it isn’t then try putting the car into drive . Reduce performance usually is a HV battery problem . If you miles to zero have been dropping faster then before that will account for many of your problems right now .

Hard reset, is popping the hood and taking the large black cable pulling it apart and letting it sit for 5-10 minutes before resetting the car correct? If so I have done this one too many times the last few days, the flashing ready has yet to leave, the gears sound like theyre grinding when they go from neutral to park. The battery life has been better than usual actually up until this happened. The car will always turn on, just ice will not seem to kick. I had this issue occur a few weeks prior this, rolled it to a charger unit on vacation did what I think is a reset and the car worked and this happened nearly a couple thousand miles later. thank you for replying

Hard reset is pulling black cable and letting sit for 5-10 mins correct?
