Hi JoeyK. The solar roof display on the 2012 vehicles is a static image and never changes.

Well in the owner's manual it clearly shows three buttons on that static display day month and year that you can select to show how much energy was generated for a day for that month or for that year it clearly shows in the owner's manual the problem with my display is that those three buttons are not there

Hi JoeyK, unfortunately the 2012 Owner's Manual is not correct. The image will always be static.

Odd!  An acquaintance of mine also has a 2012 Fisker when I consulted with him he showed me a picture of the screen in his car which has the three buttons like it does in the owner's manual and his is a 2012 model just like my own how is the consumer supposed to know whether the solar roof is charging?

What is the point of that screen anyhow if it doesn't show anything and it never changes it's clearly set up in a way that would show different information at different times

Hi JoeyK, Karma Automotive didn't manufacture the 2012 vehicle so unfortunately we cannot speak to the original intent of that screen, we just know what functions and what doesn't. Sorry we can't offer more help on this one.
