I thought I'd start the 6.14 thread early with something interesting I heard from my dealer today.

He called to let me know 6.13 had been released. He also mentioned that a 6.14 would be coming. I told him that I heard it corrected Command Center and Nav issues, and he told me his understanding was different.

Accoring to my dealer, he believes 6.14 is intended to addresses some mechanical/functional issues. Apparrently some delivered cars have experienced backfires, which cause the Check Engine light to illuninate or flash. The backfires apparrently also have the very unfortunate consequence of knocking the car out of Sport mode. The car will not re-engage Sport mode (i.e. re-engage the ICE) until a hard reset is performed, meaning you would be in EV only mode with the attendant range risks. He's heard that some dealers have reported this issue. I didn't get a sense for how prevalent it is, so I don't know if this was one car or many.

Has anyone heard anything to corroborate this?

I have driven about 400 miles, 100 of which were with the ICE running. Zero backfires.

I believe the Customer Service people are more likely to know what is coming in 6.14 than a dealer. That said, it is possible for the release to have both command center and other fixes.

Most ODB-II scanners allow a reset of the check engine light, which resets the codes held, which should allow you to re-engage Sport mode. This might void your warranty, but it might be worth carrying one in the glove box until we get 6.14, so you aren't stranded. $70 for piece of mind. I think I will be buying one.

FWIW- my Mercedes dealer was unable to reset the codes on the Fisker using either of two different scanners. Not sure why, but there may be something else that you need to know to reset.

Might require a hard reboot (disconnecting the high voltage cable to the car) as well to clear it from the Command Center?
