Question about Garmin StreetPilot C330 GPS Receiver
I had the same problem with mine shutting off ...turns out my battery was completely dead and the car charger just was not charging the unit. I charged it with the usb overnight and it worked fine:) I have yet to figure out if it is the car charger or the actual back piece the suctions to the window and attached to the battery but for now it works! Also another helpful hint for garmin C330 the Motorola Razor chargers work too I am using the house charger to charge it the wall:)

It sounds like the cigarette lighter charger/adapter isn't working.
1. First, does your cigarette lighter socket have +12VDC on it?
Try plugging in some other device that you know is good and see if the socket powers that device ok. If yes, read on below. If not, you probably have a blown fuse that powers the cigarette lighter socket. Use your vehicles owner manual to find where it is and how to replace it.
2. When you are using the Garmin cigarette lighter adapter, does the light come on the adapter? When the unit is powered by an external source (PC or Car) there should be a lightning bolt symbol that is shown over the battery bar graph display. Do you see the symbol? Try looking for the symbol when you connect it to the PC. You should also see it when using the car adapter. If not, the car adapter is defective. There is a fuse inside the Garmin car adapter plug that goes into the cigarette socket. Try looking to see if it's blown. If not, the adapter electronics is defective.
The reason why the unit keeps shutting off is because the battery isn't being charged.
