This is warning about anyone thinking about dealing with Travis Richardson, his website is fixthekarma.com, and he used to post in this forum under Lormax.
About 3 weeks ago I contacted him about a problem with my friends Karma, dead instrument cluster and gear selector, he told me the VCM would need reprogramming so I removed it and sent to him in California. He acknowledged that he received and was going to work on it, several days went by and I tried to contact him again with no reply. It has been a couple weeks now and after leaving multiple texts and voicemails he has not replied. I'm left with no VCM and key.:huh:
Not sure how many keys you sent him but anytime I do any Vcm work I ask for two keys. You can't program the the VCM without two keys but a good amount of time you just need one key to wake it up . It's just good insurance to have two keys present .
Also in order to program a VCM you need another car to install it into to program it if I'm in a rush a lot of times I send the keys and VCM to Fisker and have them program it they have a test platform which makes the programming easier the what we can do in the field . I can honestly say programming keys is a hit or miss job. Wake up signals it pretty straight forward .
I too paid him for electric motor repairs(5600.) and he brought the car back and after he left I discovered that it wasn't done or it was done improperly. I cannot reach him and he won't return calls. I think he has skipped.
