Two days after the Fisker Karma purchased by Consumer Reports died during initial testing, the luxury extended-range electric vehicle is back and the magazine said it is operating fine.
Last week, the magazine reported that a battery light on the instrument panel went on during a calibration run with just 180 miles on the odometer. After stopping the car, it locked itself in park. The dealer collected the car on a flatbed and returned it two days later.
Fisker spokesman Russell Datz told TheDetroitBureau.com in an email that the issue was tracked to a “high-voltage isolation fault” in the wiring harness/battery pack unit. The company replaced the wiring harness/battery pack unit under warranty.
