I have just replaced the battery in this ups (full charge at 12.7VDC) and after initial power on of the unit, 4 sec later it clicks to yellow and shuts off, all fuses and breakers check out and I am unsure if its a relay failure or IC system problem.

Your question was posted under the Nuvi 680 GPS, so I am assuming this is the model that you have.
On the main screen, you will see a green battery status indicator in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. The battery is divided into 4 parts. Each part represents 1/4 power. So if you have one green bar, that indicates that the battery has 1/4 of power left. If there are 3 bars, that indicates that there is 3/4 power left.
When the unit is charging, you will see a yellow lightning bolt appear over the green battery status icon.
When the lightning bolt is not there, this means the unit is running off of the battery.
When leaving the unit to charge, press and hold the power button until you see that the screen says Charging Battery. A few seconds later, the screen will go blank to save energy.
Pressing the screen again later will either say Charging Battery or Battery Charge Complete.
Perform the following steps to resolve the issue.
1. Confirm that the portable player is connected to a working USB port and that it is charging. If necessary, connect it to a different port. When connected properly, the battery icon will be animated or it will indicate the charge status such as FULL when charging is completed. 2. Make sure that you are pressing the POWER button to turn the player on. Previous Walkman models that did not have a power button would turn on by pressing any button. This model must have the power button pressed to turn it on. 3. Ensure that the HOLD function is not activated.
NOTE: For some models, when you use the portable player for the first time, if you have not used it for a long time, or the battery is depleted, it may take up to 5 minutes for it to be recognized or start charging. On models with a display, the display will remain blank. If it the portable player is not recognized or does not begin to charge after waiting 5 minutes, continue with this procedure to reset the unit. 4. If the portable player is still not responding, reset it by pressing the RESET button with a small pin or similar object. Reset button is located near the Strap hole.
NOTE: When the RESET button is pressed, although the unit will retain the music data and clock settings, all other stored data and settings may be deleted. If the unit starts up after the reset, access the Settings menu and initialize the unit using the Format (initialize) function. 5. If there was no change after the player was reset, connect it to the computer and reset it again, leaving it connected.
Thanks for using FixYa.
The Inverter is trying to produce the high voltage to light the backlight. It looks like it cannot hold the charge to maintain the high voltage level in order for it to stay on - you get a momentary display at initial power-up thus see the logo. Replace the Inverter board.
Turn UPS on: Press and hold the ON/OFF button for one second.
Run a Self-Test: Press and hold the MUTE/TEST button for two seconds (until alarm beeps several times).
The test will last 10 seconds. All LCD Display icons will be illuminated and the alarm will sound.
If the fault icon remains lit, the battery-supplied outlets are overloaded. Unplug powered devices until you remove the overload.
If the "Replace" icon remains lit and alarm continues to sound, the UPS batteries need to be recharged or replaced. Allow UPS to charge for 24 hours and repeat self-test.

your GPS unit powers down before it can fully boot up, the battery will
need to be charged. Please charge the unit with the vehicle power
cable or on a computer for at least three hours. After charging the unit,
it should power on and function normally. If the unit will not charge in
the vehicle, check the fuse in the power cable for the unit and
the power outlet in the vehicle. The nuvi 200 series, 300 series, 600 series, 700
series, 1000 series and the StreetPilot C300 and C500 series do not have user
replaceable batteries. These units must be sent in to a Garmin approved repair
facilities if a battery issue arises. Garmin and Raytech are the only Garmin approved
repair facilities. Raytech is a repair facility for Canadian customers. To repair your device
please contact the specific repair facility for your region. If your device is not
still under the 1 year warranty, there will be a cost associated with the repair of your device.
Above shows that you are trying to Cold Start the UPS. That is only used when there is no utility power. It is running everything off the battery only. Try charging the battery again and this time try just pushing the ON button and releasing.
My experience was similar to yours. The LED turned green after about only 2 hours. Because I didn't want to stay up until midnight to start playing with my Axim, I took it out of the cradle after the 2 hours and everything was fine. Besides, having downloaded and read the user's guide 2 days before receving my Axim, I knew that a green LED meant it was ready to go. 3 days later, everything is still fine and seems normal. A year ago, I received a Palm with similar initial charging requirements, and it also didn't take as long as the directions said it would.
