I am a utility contractor in Portland Oregon. My trucks all have the 3000T and this is an oh so common problem. I found an electronics store here in Oregon called Frys Electronics. To repair the DC plug you will need to replace it with a new one. It is a 1.3mm dc port/jack and if soldering it you will need to have a min. of a 40 watt soldering iron and need to order a narrow long tiped replacement tip for the iron. You can find all your parts needed at frys.com or I can FWD you all the info. Oh the ground strap is reuseable and I have not been able to find a replacement and Megellan sucks at selling their parts. There is also an awsome bunch of guys that have been very helpful @ NORVAC in Tigard OR. I wish you all luck.
