The Problem: Coolant hose clamps within the high-voltage battery pack may have been incorrectly positioned during assembly. If that’s the case, the battery compartment cover could interfere with the hose clamps, potentially causing a coolant leak. If coolant leaks into the battery compartment, it could spark an electrical short, which may result in a fire.
The Fix: Owners of affected vehicles will be instructed not to charge or drive their Karmas. Authorized Fisker dealers can arrange transportation for the Karma to their repair facility. The facility will replace the affected part in the battery pack free of charge. Owners may contact Fisker at 1-855-575-7577, OPTION 2, 6AM – 7PM (PST) Monday to Friday.
Number of Affected Vehicles: 19 2012 Fisker Karmas are added to the recall, built from September 22, 2011 through January 20, 2012.
