If it won't start up off the cigarette lighter cord, removing the battery will not solve anything. Replacement batteries are available, even the solder in styles. Just do a google search for garmin batteries
Try charging it with a 110 volt charger to see if it will come on. If not, there's something else wrong inside.
if you didnt buy a garmin charger, you might of bought one thats not compatible with your garmin, even though they might of told you it was...try to charge it with the USB cable that was supplied with your garmin and hook it up to your computer for a few hours, then try it again and see if it took a charge...the usb cable is the preferred way to initially charge your garmin...if that fails, you probably have a bad usb connector in the gps (very common problem with those)
Find the wall charger - most any usb mini that has the right out power amount [ do NOT over do it or you can burn the unit up] - Anyway - try the wall unit - if after 48 hours it refuses to take a charge - get a new one from www.tigerdirect.com for well less than the price of a battery. Good luck Gary
From dead flat it takes about 9-10 hours do not leave on charger for more than that otherwise you will overheat and burn it out. After each use recharge for about 3-4 hours depending on whether the unit has been used for that lengthyof time
More than likely when you reinstalled the gps receiver (the board with the wires connected to it) at the top of the receiver you did not position it properly. If it is not positioned properly it will not receive a satellite signal
connect the garmin to your computer using the usb port. It will start charging then. For some reason when the battery goes dead in this unit the only way to charge it is with computer. the car adaptor will not work once the battery gets real low.
My Quest2 has a short in it that drains the battery even when it is turned off. But the battery lasts normal 15 to 20 hours when fully charged and unit is on. Whenever the battery is completely dead, I have to place it on the charger for a hour or two before the unit will even start even though it is plugged plugged in. The battery can be replaced by the staff at batteries plus for under $60.00
