Question about Garmin Quest GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Garmin quest won't swith on.

I recently bought a motorcycle mount for the quest. I have a BMW R1150gs. I bought the auxillary plug and connected it to the lead from the mount. I tested the quest and it was working fine. I plugged the whole thing into the bike and put the quest in the cradle. It won't switch on. I removed it from the cradle and it won't work at all now. In frustration I bought another quest(second hand) that worked fine. I fitted fuses in the power line and double checked all power leads and contacts. I then put it all back on the bike and put the new GPS in it. Guess what!! No go!! I will not work at all either. I am now 2 quests down and fed up!! Can you advise on how to get these quests to wrk again?

The Quest charges on about 5 volts you have to plug the cigarette adapter into a 12 volt souce, the adapter then converts it to 5 volts. If you splice 12 volts directly into the mount the quest will not work because you burn up the circuits or the battery.

2002 bmw gs 1150 wont turn over


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Security alarm needs a reset.
6. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

Steering wont unlock on a r1150gs


Hi, K_smjones for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.
