Question about Garmin GPSMAP 76CSx Handheld GPS GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Battery compartment connectors

When inserting the batteries into the unit, the pos connector on one of the battery terminals broke loose. If I insert the broken tab back into the unit after the battery has been installed, the unit works fine. I just want to know who can fix this in Omaha, NE. Garmin wants $75.00 just to see it. HELP!

    Same problem here. My tab broke a while back and reinserting it worked for a while, now I have to physically hold the battery in the correct position for the unit to keep power. It no longer keeps power when the cover is replaced.

    Same here, little tab popped off after changing batteries about 20 times. POS tabs are too thin.

I had this happen with my 76CS. The cost for a look at it is $125. I used a piece of aluminum foil.

Fold it over, make certain it holds tight against the wire.

It's not the best solution, but it works.

You could also search for a device with a similar battery contact, unsolder it, and pull the Garmin apart and solder it in. I'm still looking for the right device.

How do I hook up this unit Two wires or four


Almost all car batteries have 2 pos and 2 neg. More precisely, 1 pos post and 1 side connector, 1 neg post and 1 neg side connector. You only usually use use one set or the other depending on what connectors are on the end of your cables. You can connect something else to the side posts if you need to, but generally only pair is used.

Es lexus 300 p 1705...What is this?


DTC P1705 - NC2 (Direct Clutch Speed Sensor) Revolution Sensor Circuit malfunction or Direct Clutch Speed Sensor Output is 300 RPM or less with Vehicle at 20 MPH or more & with Park/Neutral Position Switch Off

Most probably you have an electrical fault causing the problem and attached is a diagnostic procedure. It could be 2 separate problems and after rectifying the P1705 only would you know it is single or 2. Repair manual shows right on top of transmission, black sensor with single bolt, 2 wire plug. P/N 89413-08020 list price $113.80

NOTE: DTC P1705 is set when PCM receives 2 gear position signals at the same time.

1. Turn ignition on. If any A/T gear position indicator lights remain illuminated when gear selector is moved from that gear, go to next step. If all A/T gear position indicator lights turn off when gear selector is moved from that gear, system is okay at this time.

2. Disconnect A/T gear position switch connector. If all A/T gear position switch indicators go out, replace A/T gear position switch. If all A/T gear position switch indicators do not go out, go to next step.

3. Reconnect A/T gear position switch connector. Shift through all gear positions except Reverse. Using a DVOM, measure voltage between 16-pin PCM harness connector "D", terminal No. 6 (Green/Red wire on 2.3CL or White wire on Accord and Odyssey) and 25-pin PCM harness connector "B" terminals No. 20 or 22 (Brown/Black wires).

If battery voltage is present, go to next step. If battery voltage is not present, check for a short in Green/Red or White wire between 16-pin PCM harness connector "D" and A/T gear position indicator, or A/T gear position switch. Repair as necessary. If Green/Red or White wire is okay, check for loose PCM harness connectors. Replace PCM with a known-good unit if necessary.

4. Shift through all gear positions except Neutral and Park. Measure voltage between 16-pin PCM harness connector "D", terminal No. 13 (Blue/White wire on Accord or Light Green wire on 2.3CL and Odyssey) and 25-pin PCM harness connector "B" terminals No. 20 or 22 (Brown/Black wires). If battery voltage is present, go to next step. If battery voltage is not present, check for a short in Blue/White or Light Green wire between 16-pin PCM harness connector "D" and A/T gear position indicator, or A/T gear position switch. Repair as necessary. If Blue/White or Light Green wire is okay, check for loose PCM harness connectors. Replace PCM with a known-good unit if necessary.

5. Shift through all gear positions except "D4". Measure voltage between 16-pin PCM harness connector "D", terminal No. 9 (Light Green/Black wire on 2.3CL or Yellow wire on Accord and Odyssey) and 25-pin PCM harness connector "B" terminals No. 20 or 22 (Brown/Black wires). If battery voltage is present, go to next step. If battery voltage is not present, check for a short in Light Green/Black or Yellow wire between 16-pin PCM harness connector "D" and A/T gear position switch. Repair as necessary. If Light Green/Black or Yellow wire is okay, check for loose PCM harness connectors. Replace PCM with a known-good unit if necessary.

6. Shift through all gear positions except "D3". Measure voltage between 16-pin PCM harness connector "D", terminal No. 8 (Green/Blue wire on 2.3CL or Pink wire on Accord and Odyssey) and 25-pin PCM harness connector "B" terminals No. 20 or 22 (Brown/Black wires). If battery voltage is present, go to next step. If battery voltage is not present, check for a short in Green/Blue or Pink wire between 16-pin PCM harness connector "D" and A/T gear position indicator, or A/T gear position switch. Repair as necessary. If Green/Blue or Pink wire is okay, check for loose PCM harness connectors. Replace PCM with a known-good unit if necessary.

7. Shift through all gear positions except "2". Measure voltage between 16-pin PCM harness connector "D", terminal No. 14 (Green/Yellow wire on 2.3CL or Blue wire on Accord and Odyssey) and 25-pin PCM harness connector "B" terminals No. 20 or 22 (Brown/Black wires). If battery voltage is present, go to next step. If battery voltage is not present, check for a short in Green/Yellow or Blue wire between 16-pin PCM harness connector "D" and A/T gear position indicator, or A/T gear position switch. Repair as necessary. If Green/Yellow or Blue wire is okay, check for loose PCM harness connectors. Replace PCM with a known-good unit if necessary.

8. Shift through all gear positions except "1". Measure voltage between 16-pin PCM harness connector "D", terminal No. 15 (Light Green/White wire on 2.3CL or Brown wire on Accord and Odyssey) and 25-pin PCM harness connector "B" terminals No. 20 or 22 (Brown/Black wires). If battery voltage is present, check for loose PCM harness connectors. Replace PCM with a known- good unit if necessary. If battery voltage is not present, check for a short in Light Green/White or Brown wire between 16-pin PCM harness connector "D" and A/T gear position indicator, or A/T gear position switch. Repair as necessary. If Light Green/White or Brown wire is okay, check for loose PCM harness connectors. Replace PCM with a known-good unit if necessary.

Where can i get Pogo Radio YourWay LX Replacement Battery ...


You are going to have to modify the battery compartment since Pogo is no longer in business. You will need a Dremel to cut the back plane of the battery compartment out. The back plain is the plastic piece that the separate the circuit and battery compartment. When you insert the battery it is inserted until it stop against the back plain. You will need to remove the back cover to cut the plain out. Once this is done just take teh old battery to a battery store for a replacement. the voltage should be 3.7 volts, and as close to the MA as possible. Also make sure that the new battery has the right connector or otherwise you will have to reuse the connector from the old battery buy cutting the wires as close to the old battery as possible and resoldering to the new battery. good luck

Nikon F601 Wont Turn On...


The most common cause of no electrical function is some sort of corrosion on the battery terminal connectors.  Assuming the battery is the correct type (6V DL223A, CR-P2) and holding a good charge, it could be that one or both of the prongs at the bottom of the battery compartment has something on it. The F601 (or the N6006 version, which I have) is 16-17 years old now, and has likely picked up some battery corrosion over its lifetime. Try rubbing the top of the terminals with a rough pencil eraser (being careful not to bend the prongs over).
You might also check to see whether the battery is latching under the tiny tabs inside the edge of the battery compartment when it is inserted. It should be- this holds the battery down tight against the terminal prongs.
If the battery is good, inserted correctly (open terminal end in first), and the F601 still doesn't power up, then...ummm...

Positive terminal keeps getting corroded even after 3 weeks.


Try keeping the terminal far away from any moisture and dirt. In fact isolating it may not be a bad idea. Try getting a battery box for it or sealing off the existing one, just make sure to use a drain tube and vent. Some stores have battery terminal isolators, these are less effective but can help. There is also a battery terminal sealant spray that may be helpful if you cannot get/use a battery box. Clean the terminals thoroughly, spray the terminal sealant, and use the battery box for a three way attack. This is especially use full in harsh climates. These methods can also be used on remote battery terminals that are on some cars.

Van dies while in operation


That points to the battery.

Does it click or chatter when you turn the key to restart?

You have an apparent GROUND and POSITIVE 12v off the battery when the car IS running, but noyjhing when it dies. I love a mystery ;-)

If there is a loose connection at either terminal of the battery or the cables where they connect to the car frame, the connector lugs at the battery will arc and vaporize the metal at the weakest point of contact and all you will get is a click. Take off the battery connectors and clean the posts and insides of the connectors with sandpaper, then starting with the POS (Red +) side, push them on firmly, loosen the clamp bolts tap them several times around in a circle with a small hammer, block of wood or screwdriver handle so they seat all the way down, then tighten the bolts. If it wont go, remove the bolt, insert a flat-blade screwdriver in the **** and twist the screwdriver to expand a bit then tap some more. NOT HARD... just alot of little taps) Put the bolt back in and do the NEG (Black, -) the same way.

NOW it will start!

WILL NOT TURN ON


There are generally 2 causes for this symptom.

1. The input connector is usually a 3 terminal device. When the plug is inserted into the device, a spring loaded contact is pushed away from another terminal which effectively disconnects the battery section from the device. This stops any electricity from the plug from being connected to your batteries and causing overload conditions. If this spring loaded terminal has been damaged, when the plug is removed from the device it will not "spring" itself back to its terminal and the battery power will not reach the PC board.

2. The battery case (compartment) has 2 wires going from it (internal to the device) one black and one red. If either of these wires has broken off the battery holder or broken off the PC board within the device, it will not power up.

You can also make sure that all the batteries are inserted in the correct direction. Since the unit works when plugged in, you can cross out anything else having to do with the unit.
