A couple weeks ago I started losing my presets when I turn the car off.Does the failure happen when accelerating or braking or hitting a bump in the road? If so, the battery cable may be loose on the terminal.
To access the battery, you need a jack. It's hidden under the right front fender.
Reduced Performance Error is definitely triggered by pothole.A couple weeks ago I started losing my presets when I turn the car off.
Yesterday I hit a bump and the Reduced Performance error came on. When the car reset the error is gone.
Later when I hit a bump (pot hole) the Reduced Performance air immediately came on again. Could this be the battery cable loose? This sounds like a logical explanation.
Harleyguy, can you use your computer to reprogram my CIU to restore my loss presets when I turn the car back on?
It just occurred to me that it’s possible that the same road conditions that takes the car out of Hill Mode could be associated with the reduced performance arror problem I’m having.Reduced Performance Error is definitely triggered by pothole.
I pulled the wheel and check the battery cables they were tight. I retighten them just for reassurance.
I have been driving carefully to avoid potholes but as soon as I hit a pothole the reduced performance error message reappears. A soft reset the reduced performance air disappears and the check engine light remains. Eventually the check engine error resets on its on and all error messages are gone.
What possibly does potholes or violent movements of the chassis have to do with Reduced Performance error coming on?

There are certain road conditions that will take the car out of Hill Mode which I believe is normal and most of us may have experienced this. You’re driving along and all of a sudden you hit a bump or certain road conditions and the car drops out of Hill Mode.
Can someone explain what triggers this action because I’m trying to determine if it has anything to do with the reduced performance arror. What sends the signal to the Vehicle to take away the Hill Mode?
P0A4C Generator Position Sensor Circuit Range/PerformanceABS/EBCM/Traction Control is what takes it out of hill mode. Should not trigger RPM though. Get a handheld scanner and post the codes. Can borrow one from Autozone for free.
I hope it fixed the problem especially have to spend that much on it.Do you lose the ability to use ICE? If so, it's a big deal as I just had this done with my car. It's possible the damper assembly and coupler shaft will need replacing. This will require the whole engine to be removed. Assuming you can get this under the warranty program, Fisker should cover most of the costs (cost around $3,500).
