If a wall powered charger is used it could be bad or the connection from it to the unit damaged---happens if the charger is connected/disconnected a lot----same thing can happen if using the lighter plug adapter for charging.
garmin are very fussy about there chargers if its the original charger then there is a fault with it if its not the original then get one ( you can only use genuine garmin chargers for garmin gps units) they have a clever sensor in them that stops you from using any other type of charger
You have a short in the wire that runs to your unit. Other than holding the wire in the exact location until your charge is complete you would be better off replacing the charging cord. They should be available at your local shop for around $19-$29.00.
Yes, you need to charge it. USE the charger that came with it for best results. Some off brand chargers will NOT work. You plugged it into your car and nothing? Even if the batteries are bad it should still work. Is it the Garmin charger?

If your unit will not charge in your vehicle, you may need to replace the
fuse located in the tip of the vehicle power adapter.
Unscrew and remove the silver
or black, round end piece.
If you are trying to use your unit in the car via the USB port and not the supplied cable, it will not work. You must use the bracket that came with the unit or the specific charger that came with the unit. The pins in the Garmin USB charger only use two pins whereas a regular charge cable uses 4.
