I had the same exact problem about three years ago when mine was new. I sent it back to Garmin and it took some convincing on my part to get them to replace the mount and cable for the car. The first time I sent it back they only wanted the unit back, not the mount. Same problem when i tried the replacement unit. I called service again and told them that I was sure it was in the cable from the cig. lighter socket and that I was going to send the whole system back. They said ok and when I received it back from Garmin the second time I had anew mount and it has been fine since. By woodtick

Low battery

You need to plug it into to the cigarette lighter or your pc. I take mine in the house and connect it to the pc to charge, but it will charge with the cigarett lighter too.

Cigerette lighter adaptor for my 2010 camry dont work

do not change the batery. If the car still runs fine the problem is a blown fuse. Find the fuse panel, On the back side of the fuse panel cover is the fuse location chart. Look for the cig lighter fuse it is probably 20 amp

My bracket for my suction mount broke so I cant use a cigerette lighter charger is there another way to charge my GPS

If you were using a standard Nuvi 3xx cradle, pull the charger cord from the back of the cradle and plug it into the side of the Nuvi, into the mini-USB port. You can charge it that way.

Got a Marlboro Power Pak at a yard sale. He said it was never used but it did not come with an AC power cord to charge it. I plugged in what came with it to my cigerette lighter and it did not charge. Does...

Charging via your cigarete lighter would be VERY SLOW, especially if the device has sat aaround and discharged.

If it has a place to plug in AC, often one can find cords at thrift stores that will fit the connector.

Some of these used wall transformer units supplying 13 or 14 volts to charge.

The battery may be so far down it may damage the charger.

Honda goldwing 1100 1981 i bought an air pump pluged into the cigerette lighter and blew a fuse i hope everything else works but the radio and the cigerette lighter can you help?

A better answer than 'just replace the fuse', is to install a new lighter socket near the battery with a new fuse holder and a heavy enough fuse and wiring to sustain the current draw of the air pump. Connect the wiring (with fuse) directly to the battery connections. Hope this helps.

Cigarette lighter wont work no more on my 2001 aurora

1st check all fuses. 2nd why do you need to charge all the time? If your battery keeps going low and you have to charge it all the time , perhaps you need a new battery. If the charger has to give the battery a large charge then it may have caused the fuse to fail on that circut. . Is this device for a cell phone? If it is then you probably blew a fuse. Let me know if you are charging the car battery or charging a cell phone battery.

Charging the battery in Nuvi 760

1) Check the cigarette lighter is working by plugging in the lighter unit and see if it gets hot. If it doesn't then it is possible the fuse has blown.

2) You can plug the unit into a PC using the USB cable and if there is a fault you will get a message on the screen about 'USB over-current' but it shouldn't damage the computer.

If it runs/charges using the PC and (1) is OK then you may have a problem with the cigarette lighter - cradle cable or a problem with the cradle itself.
