The Instrument panel cluster and PRND switch unit have lost their "wake up" signal from the VCM. This happens alot when the 12v battery dies. It typically occurs when the battery goes dead before the car goes to sleep before the modules have had a chance to write their data to memory. This corrupts the VCM (vehicle control module) software and for some reason it stops sending it's wake up signal out to that branch of the network. I've fixed a dozen of these, need to reflash software to the VGM then VCM to correct. If you are not near a dealer with a Fisker scan tool and latest software, I can send you mine and fix it remotely. PM me if you need the help.

@FiskerPhilly really deserves huge Kudos for implementing a really practical portable solution for these types of problems. Bringing the mountain to Mohamed seems to be working great for a lot of esoteric Fisker-specific problems. Thank you for making this option available for those of us in the Fisker hinterlands. Now if only he could come up with a remote robotic system to rebuild an RDM, we will really be in business.

Basically, something like this, but for the HV battery (nurse optional).
