Hello, I'm a car electronic technichan and currently have a fisker karma my2012 in my garage that's not charging, when i plug it in it starts charging and then 10 seconds later stops, you can hear the click, i've already took off the HV battery, and testing the contactors on bench they click and turn to 2 ohm, is the problem on this contactors related to current? (not bringing enough current?)
or maybe can be something else?
Anyway i have one error related, it's:

P0A7B

but with the instruments i have i can only do eobd connection, is there a specific instrument to do a full diagnosis on these cars?

Thanks

No 5 contactor most likely.

Cod P0A7B, BECM is requesting MIL and that code should be followed by another code that pinpoints the problem.

Only Fisker Karma WDI (Prodis) can perform a full diagnosis.

Try to charge at a public ChargePoint station (to rule out a faulty 240 volt charger).

I don't think it's the obcm since i've tried with the fast charging station but the result is the same, do you perhaps know which one of the 5 contactors is the one to switch? It seems like the EDM has already been opened by someone else before, there were marks on screws and nuts most likely a contactor has been changed in the past already, is it so common for these contactors to fail?

Just because the contactor was replaced before doesnt mean it can fail again. Ive replaced the number 5 contactor numerous times after they been replaced. You also need to separate the contactors in order to properly check them. If the check engine light is on and you hear the relays clunk when you plug the car in and after a few seconds you hear them clunk again I would replace the contactor . And never rule out the OBCM they also have a failure problem .

Yes, since i've the hv battery on bench it makes sense to change the contactor, can you tell me which is te n.5? or would you guys suggest to change them all?
