Whenever I plug in my car it say's it already charged and won't charge.

Tried 2 charging stations and the travel charger.
Currently at the dealer now and they don't know what's wrong. They've contacted Fisker but haven't figured out what's going on yet.

They've installed 6.15 but the car still won't charge i.e. thinks it's already fully charged.

Has anyone else experienced this?

I recently ran into this issue with my level 1 charger I use at home.
I would plug the car in and everything looked like it was charging but it would not.
While my dealer was installing the 615 upgrade they also experienced the issue.
They contacted Fisker and downloaded a patch.
HarleyGuy also asked me to find out about this.....I'll contact Patrick Fisker and see if I can get a patch # for you guy's.

Just had this issue appear last weekend after about 1100 miles. Car is due to go to dealer next week for 6.15. Would appreciate any info on patch/fix for this so I can inform my dealer.

Yes a patch is out which gets done if the car has certain codes stored .Also make sure the car goes to sleep I still consider that 2 minute wait well worth it

I had this problem with my car. I would put it on the charger and it would start to charge and then the next morning the car only charged maybe 11 miles worth. The problem ended up being a valve for the battery pack cooling system that was defective. The valve would not open and allow the coolant to flow and the computer system would sense that the coolant was not flowing and disconnect the charger to protect the battery pack. The car had worked fine before the part failed and has been working flawlessly ever since the part has been replaced. Hope this helps.

You also probably noticed when you came out and checked on the car as some point the low temperature cooling fans might of been running

Apparently my charging unit was faulty and thought the battery was fully charged. They replaced it and it seems to be working fine now.

Just goes to prove that not every fault is not necessarily a software fault.

620 miles on my Karma. Last 2 times ive plugged in, car will not charge, now have 1 mile of range left. Still running 6.14, have had very few issues so far, but this one is a bummer. Love the car though, very few complaints and NO regrets, wish i knew what the issue was. It appears others having this problem are not all having it for the same reason.
