It's kind of tough to find those parts by themselves. Your best bet is to just order a new charger and make sure the end is on tight this time. The part that scres on is usually meta and knurled, so you could use a pair of plyers to tighten it.

I Cant turn it on.

The car charger input is +12VDC and +5VDC at the plug that plugs into the Nuvi. Make sure your car +12V outlet is working. Try another device in the outlet. Check that the fuse in the charger tip isn't blown. The tip unscrews. Be careful, the charger tip, fuse and spring can shoot out. Cup your hand over the end while you use the other hand to slowly unscrew the charger tip. You can have a bad charger plug or cradle. Also, try pressing the reset button, underneath of the flip up antenna assembly. SHARCNET USA Out of Warranty GPS Consumer Electronics Repair Center

The fuse is fine, but when i put the car charger in it still doesnt work my car is a 2002 pontiac bonneville

Most car chargers have a fuse in the part that plugs in. you can unscrew the tip and check the fuse. But first plug in another charger and see if it works.

Unit will not power on. Light on the charger does

if the light is not on, on the charger, check the fuse in the end of the car charger...the tip unscrews and there is a tiny fuse just under the tip.

if thats ok, check the fuse to the outlet you are using in your car.

if the light comes on the charger and it still wont charge, let me know and i can help you fix it.

Megallan 3250 car chrager tip is missing

I went out and purchased an iGo charger. I was able to purchase the charger at a Radio Shack store, but in order to get the proper tip, I had to go to the manufacturer web site and order from there. I'm sure that you could order a new charger from Magellan, but it might be more expensive to do so. The iGo is capable of taking multiple tips for multiple devices. I hope that this helps.

GPS charger of my car is not working.

first check and make sure the socket in the car is getting power, like trying your phone charger or something similar. if its not, locate the fuse in the car and see if its ok. if its ok check the fuse for the charger, most are in the tip that gets plugged in to the car. most can be removed by screwing the tip off. if the fuse is ok, then there is probably a problem with the gps.
