Need guidAnce

Was driving 2018 revero roughly 40 mph and felt and heard a loud pop.  Vehicle cruises to a halt and all functionality of the vehicle ceased.  Has only 14k miles and driven with care.  Attached are some not all warning indicators.  Any thoughts?  Had three other warnings but the ones attached were more concerning.

I have never seen those messages. My 2018 Revero has just over 15500 miles for reference. No issues, other than I can DC fast charge. 

I would get it to a Karma dealer ASAP. The notice on the 12V could mean it's not a problem in the HV battery pack. If the 12V battery is not functional or at sufficient power, the contactors might not be able to function on the HV battery.The dealer needs to get a scan tool on it to read the detailed error codes. That "pop" you heard could have been a contractor opening or a HV fuse popping to protect some system. Good luck and let us know what you find out please.

Thanks The dealership has had it for 2 days and still so far they don't know what the problem is.  Vehicle will not shift into gear and has no propulsion.  I'll update once I find out!

Blew MSD Relay Fuse behind passenger seat.  Easy fix at the dealership.

have them upgrade it to a 630a or carry a spare one with you.  PowerSource has a video on their youtube on how you can upgrade it for a few bucks

Glad to see some new posts here guys. Do you have a part number for that 650a? Is this something that can be purchased on Amazon?

gmorris  That was the case of the Fisker Karma and the Karma Revero back in 2015, I do not think the TOM has anything to do with the Karma Revero GT 2020-2021 and the GS-6 2021... I thought the whole drive train, electronic were revised under the Chinese corp parent company as well as the batteries?

BoudahXL  not sure about the new ones but I know the older ones PowerSource knows how they work better than Karma, from my experience.

I had this happen to me today. I posted it under the "Yellow engine light " post.  

I just remembered your post and wanted to follow-up to see if everything has been oK since the MSD Relay Fuse replacement?

I got my car going again, but I likely need that relay replaced as well. Any feedback is appreciated!

I have had no issues since it was replaced!  It was repaired at the dealership and I was not aware of the upgraded fuse but I am definitely going to look into it.

Thank you for the feedback. I am going to the dealer on Monday and will hopefully have similar results.
