HAving worked with Fisker and Ecotality engineers now for several weeks, and playing with a variety of settings, we have found the following:
AFter the 6.28 update and a battery change (also replaced RDM and fans)...
Delayed scheduled charging does not work
Immediate scheduled charge (set schedule from 0800 to 0759- essentially allowing charging for 23 hrs and 59 min) causes car to immediate charge on plugin
Manually setting to "charge on lug in" does not work

A/C must be turned off before car turned off
Setting for power ACC delay must be to off
Car must be locked and allowed to sleep first

This does not appear to be a universal problem but there is a software compatibility issue with 6.28 and the Blink units. they double checked the 6.28 install on my car among other things- perplexing issue really. SOmetimes the car just will not allow a charging episode to occur even after the car and unit communicate- the charger appears to be charging (no fault) but no power getting into car. Has also happened on public units

Anybody who has charging issues of any kind , could you please state them in this thread so engineers can keep tabs on different scenarios that may affect charging. Thank you

I have found the following error on my car.
I have installed an fisker certified charger for the wall from denmark.
My car starts to charge then stops.
I have tried with the portable loader and the same thing (even with the button for slow charge). I tried all day and same thing.
It has worked before.
Could this be that i have A/C on latest drive?
I always let the car to sleep.
[hr]
what does it mean with setting for ACC delay must be off? is this an setting in the karma?

Plugged the car in last night with a few miles left, this AM the car had not charged. Tried it again this afternoon for a few hours, the range had stayed the same. The next time I watched the green light on the rapid charger go off after a few minutes, without any red fault light. The circuit breakers had not tripped. This indicates a problem with the car. I've never had this issue until now and have changed nothing in the charging setup.

on my car they exchanged a module and it worked. it had never worked since new.
I think if the factory do more test before shipping the cars it would improve cutomers first feeling around the car.

There are several issues that can cause this problem...On my Karma it was an air bubble in the battery coolant system causing battery to overheat while charging...on others Karma's it has been a thermostat on the battery charging system or command center...The bottom line is that this is not a software glitch and will need to be repaired by your Fisker Dealer mechanic.
