Does anyone know the fuse size of the 12V accessory power port on the Fisker Karma? I just ordered a 12V 14A Air Compressor to fill a tire with low pressure on the car. I just want to make sure that the fuse is at least 15A. I looked through the list of the 49 fuses in the manual, however I cannot identify which fuse is used for the accessory power port.

Didn't your car come with the flat tire kit in the trunk ??
Yes it did, however I am saving that for an emergency when I am not at or near home. I recall from years back tire repair shops hate fixing tires with the spray gunk inside. I did fill it up using a compressor last night in the garage to 38 lbs, and this morning I still had 37 lbs so I drove to work. I plan on holding off taking the car in to have the tire fixed till I have more time, as long as the leak remains very slow.

I know people have actually used that compressor to fix flat tires, but that is a pretty anemic blower. I was trying to use it to just inflate a tire on our other car and it just could not do it.

Yes, I know, we are way off topic. So I will stop.

Where do I purchase the tire sealant?

Does anyone know where to purchase the tire sealant replacement canister?

I woke up one morning to a flat tire on the Fisker and used the tire repair kit to pump the tire up. The pump was not strong enough to fill the tire with the heavy weight of the Fisker on it. It was useless.

I used the screw up jack from my SUV to lift the weight of the Karma off the tire and the tire filled up just find. I drove for a couple of months having to put air in the tire every week or so. I took it in to have the tire repaired and found that the rim was cracked probably from hitting a pothole. I had the rim repaired for $150 and the tire and rim have performed without problems since. This was about three months ago. It just dawned on me that I need a new can of sealant in the event that I have another tire issue.

Where do I purchase the tire sealant that came with the kit?

I will PM you

From what I understand, the sealant doesn't come separate. You'd need a new kit.
Not true it's available

No kidding? That's good to hear actually. Only one person ever used their kit while I was at the dealer, and the service manager dealt with that one. Thanks Harleyguy
