Not sure if others have covered these specific issues so I figured I would start a new thread- sorry:

HAve had car since Feb. now almost 4000 mi mostly in stealth- have been on 615 since it came out- current issues I seem to have

1. Key fob not recognized every time- have to always go into settings, interior and reset parade (or screen is dark) then go to memory and press set for key fob I am using

2. CEL did not come on since 615 UNTIL I put some gas in tank- seems when that happens, the CEL comes on and now will not go away- no PRND fault (although I daily press N anyway) and now some of the OBD warnings come on for a few days then go away- somewhat random but most common is washer fluid- which is full

3. Other issues as everyone has had with slow bluetooth screens etc but otherwise all is good

car seems to sun fine otherwise and I really don't mind CEl but just wonder why

still at 400 mpg- wish it would track higher as I probably am at 540 mpg- have put 7 gal in since I received car ??:idea:

Only one I seem to have that I haven't seen otherwise is having to press "Accept" on the Command Center screen twice. I've gotten so used to this it seems natural now....

Had a CEL, did a hard reset (not a difficult process at all) and it's been fine since.

1800 miles, current avg. of 98 mpg.

I have the FOB detection issue too, at least I think that is the reason for my Ease of Entry not working, usually first time in the morning.
I have also had the car not fully charge once since updating to 6.15.
USB usally works, but sometimes the steering control is unable to switch songs.
No other known faults since 6.15. About 3500 miles on mine now.

Since the upgrade I have had the parking radar beeping stay on once...Sometimes the blue-tooth phone crackles loudly...and intermittantly I still lose presets, but has been better since I programmed the FOB...have same problem with "easy entry" working only intermittantly.

Does anyone know how to get the traffic thing to work?

Does anyone use the cooling while parked feature and if so how do you know it has turned on?

cooling feature works- very faint fan but as soon as you unlock car it turns off. just keeps fan running but not cool air. Hopefully one day they will get the cabin preconditioning feature working then cool air will circulate before you enter car- especially need it here in AZ[hr]
Never had to do hard reboot- only soft - since I have owned car BUT if I ever need to, does that erase all of the memory (radio/satellite presets etc)?

@DNAGuy: Both of these issues have been extensively discussed before. Regarding Traffic, see this thread. Bottom line, the traffic alert system does not work in the US and Fisker will be taking that feature out of the command center for US cars.

Regarding cabin ventilation, see this post. Bottom line: It's not air conditioning, just cabin ventilation with fresh outside air.

Fab,

Yeah....but how do you turn it on? Or is it on automatically. I have no evidence of it running on a 104 degree day while parked in the sun. The leather must've been 150. Baked buns. After starting and turning the A/C to number 10, I couldn't get cool air until I went from outside air to recirculate.

@BY: I did not set any settings for this prior to my experiment. It just came on after leaving the car in the sun for a couple of minutes. The airflow is pretty modest so you can't expect a cool cabin, especially in direct sunlight, but it does appear to mitigate the heat somewhat.

Thanks Fab!

Fab,

Thanks for your enlightenment...Now I can stop worrying about the traffic feature. Now that I am aware that the fan cooling operates automatically, it does occur to me that the cabin is cooler that expected on a hot day...

Any words of wisdom about the windshield washer not working?

Btw., I spoke to Fisker's Regional service manager today, cabin preconditioning is not working in 6.28, but will be fans only (no AC) when implemented.

Which basically makes it "NOT" cabin preconditioning and useless in the winter and next to useless in the summer. I agree that the car is getting better with every software update, but is it too much to ask for what we were promised? "No Compromises"??????? I'm not sayin', I just sayin'. ;-)
