Question about Amcor 3900 GPS Receiver

Lost cigarette lighter adaptor

We lost the three silver pieces on the tip of the adaptor. We took it apart to replace the fuse and we think the pieces fell out of the car when my husband got out to purchase the fuses, and when he returned he didn't realize that they were missing until the next day. So I need to either replace the car charger or replace the missing pieces.

Thank you in advance for any assistance you may offer.

Garmin says low battery and now will not work in the car. Does this Garmin have a battery inside the unit that I have to replace?


There is a battery in the satnav but it's not user replaceable. It can only be replaced by returning it to Garmin. Before sending it away to replace the battery you could check the following;

  • Have you the satnav connected to the charger?
  • If it's connected to the charger is the cigarette lighter socket working. You can check by plugging in another device to see if it works
  • If the cigarette lighter socket is working and the battery of the satnav is not charging it's possible that the fuse in the plug, that goes into the cigarette lighter socket, is blown.
To change the fuse;
Unscrew the ring that's at the end of the plug and the plug comes apart. Be careful not to lose the silver coloured tip. When the plug comes apart you can take out the fuse and get a replacement at any car accessory shop or a shop that sells garmin satnavs.

If you have to return your satnav to garmin you can find their contact details at http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/home/support/supportcontact

No power coming from car lighter to Garmin GPS - lighter DOES work for other accessorys


It's probably the fuse in the charger that's blown. The fuse is in the plug that goes into the cigarette lighter socket. At the end of the plug there's a ring, usually silver coloured but sometimes black, which you unscrew to get at the fuse. When you unscrew it the plug comes apart. Be careful not to lose the silver tip at the end of the plug which may fall out. You can get a replacement fuse at any shop that sells garmin satnavs or at any car accessory shop.

My car charger will not charge battery in garmin Nuvi 760


The fuse may be gone in the charger. There's a ring, near the silver tip, of the plug that goes into the cigarette lighter. If you unscrew the ring the plug will come apart. Take care not to lose the silver tip as it may fall out. Replace the fuse and it may solve the problem.

Hi, My Garmin nuvi 350 just stopped working. I had it plugged into cigarette lighter and also tried a 2nd plug in area in my car. Nothing! I read on 1 website that the silver cable tip may need a new...


There's a fuse in the plug that goes into the cigarette lighter socket. To get at it unscrew the ring at the end beside the silver tip. When you take the ring off, being careful not to lose the silver tip, the plug comes apart. Take out the fuse and take it to any car electrical suppliers shop and they will give you a replacement for it.

Nuvi will not charge when plugged into car charger but will charge when plugged into house charger


  1. Check that the cigarette lighter socket is working. If not it may be a fuse blown in the fuse-board.
  2. In the charger plug, that goes into the cigarette lighter there is a fuse which may be blown. At the tip of the plug you'll see a ring. On most chargers it's silver but some are black. Unscrew the ring and the plug will come apart. Take care not to lose the small metal tip when you open it. Replace the fuse. If there's power going to the charger and this fuse is replaced your problem should be solved.

The part that goes into the cigarette lighter broke on my Garin Nuvi. When I pulled it out, the small metal pieces, and a little glass tube fell out. How do I put it back together?


The glass tube is the fuse. There should be a spring and threaded metal barrel with a metal tip that slides through it. Look for these (4) parts.

The spring goes in first, followed by the glass fuse and then the metal tip should pass through the metal barrel. Screw the metal barrel with the tip on the end over the fuse. When you press on the tip, it should push in a little and spring back out. If you lost the pieces, you'll need to purchase another charger.

Dual NavAtlas XNAV3500P


I had the same problem, check the fuse, also if the fuse is blown check the piece that fits into the device, you may have lost the little part that stops the fuse from blowing, it looks like a small ring on the end, stops it from shorting.

Does anyone know where I can purchase a NavAtlas 3550 cigarette lighter charger? I have tried 2 Universal adapters and none work! HELP!!
