5 Karma's 1 Mission. Drive from southern California to northern Minnesota for winter testing new wiring and various 'under the skin' sub systems and software. Brave people with gorgeous cars. No trailer queens here !

Hope they tested the temperature damper in the HVAC while there. I'll guarantee at least 1 of the 5 drivers has cold feet, lol.

Actually they will be burning hot on one side and freezing cold on the other side .
This was indeed a recognized problem that we are addressing. Don't know yet if we can make a retrofit solution, but it is definitely on the drawing board.

I don't believe it's a hardware issue its another software issue. The command and actual position of the DMM motors aren't in sync or the software is commanding the wrong position of the DMM motor causing the DMM motor to overextend the vent position shade then the shade rips . We had the same problem with Volvo but they didn't use a fabric shade .

Yes I also reported that to them. Many times it sticks when the damper closes fully when you turn car off. Then it sticks when you start car cold it is frozen shut

Have same problem with my car..
I remember on the Fisker scanning tool was error message on the hvac . some thing like no communication between the hvac and software

If you have a early Vin that's the reason why you can't view software level or communicate with the HVAC module . If your not having a problem with the HVAC unit you can have the new HVAC computer installed .

I always advise customer to replace HVAC control module with latest hardware which is flashable then you can communicate with scan tool and calibrate the Damper motors. See how that works. Its not real expensive to try. It fixes some of the issues.

Final pics of this test run
Great photos. What's with the gigantic antenna on the top of the White Karma in this photo?



Also, did you experience any TPMS failures from the cold weather? Before I put away my Karma for the winter, I drove it in 20F temperature one day and the "low pressure" warning light came on on the dash even though the tires were are the right pressure. It may be coincidence, but I wondered if there was a lower limit for the TPMS sensors.
