So it's been over a week now. Still can't play online, still getting this item inventory synchronization error, and just now, I get stuck inside a rock during a cop chase. Cops get to me, start to bust me, and the game finally resets me. However, when I respawned, though I was nowhere near a cop and the busted meter was not visible, I can still hear the audio cue, and I was busted. No where near cop. This has happened before. I want to know why it's taking so God damn long to fix this game. EA, Ghost, what the hell are you doing?

I Found this fix from 2013 by EA_Spectre
(Note: Not originally for NFS heat, just a game with similar issue (IT WORKED FOR ME)!)
here is what he said
You will have to trick the Origin client to do that, but it's possible. This is how you do that:
Start the game without being logged into the Origin client and check if all the saves you want are there, then close it again.
Start the game again and you should get a pop-up where you can choose to overwrite the cloud save with your local save.
Sold all cars i bought after the last working safe. Drove a race. Closed the game.
Since then i can play online. Only Problem, all money ist is gone
