Garmin ique 3600 won't turn on after battery goes dead


i have the above model and when the battery runs out, it goes dead of course. the problem tho' is that when i put it on charge, the green light on top blinks and after a while when i try to turn it on, nothing happens. well, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. i also know that the battery is good. is there something i'm not doing right?
thank you!

I did not use my Garmin for a couple months. When I turned it on it said battery dangerously low and it turned off. I hooked it up to the charger over night and the battery did not take a charge.

I had the identical problem; I called Garmin and a new battery = $50, installed only @ the factory. I tried buying one off eBay, but those batteries spec out ok but don't have the pigtail leads required for my M3 (probably would work just fine for M5). I soldered on the pigtail from the old battery from my M3, then put it all back together. Works! However, the new battery ultimately drains down over several hours so when I'm not using it I have to trickle-charge the thing constantly. Bottom line: I suggest sending your M3 back to the factory for a new battery rather than trying to replace it on your own.

actually i figured something else out.(tried your solution and didn't work for some reason). i just reset the device and it come right on, careful tho, don't erase your data, unless you want to. so the reset worked every time.

SOURCE: iQue3600 maps unavailable

You can get City Navigator 2008 CD from your local Garmin dealer. Cost around $100.
It updates via MapSource program and USB connection to IQue 3600.
Do not get "NT" maps as 3600 does not understand "NT" compression

SOURCE: No serial number for Ique

Garmin can activate the unit from either the serial number or the unit ID. Doesn't sound like a big problem, just call them to do it that way. I did that on mine that I got off of eBay a year and a half ago without a sticker.

I have a buzzaround model #gb 101. the light is green. but i noticed the reset button is pushed under the deck that you put your feet on. could that be why its not running? even tho the light is gree

Lift out the battery module below the seat. Turn upside down remove about 8 or 10 little screws. Look inside for a wire connection that came off one of the 2 batteries. Also check the inline little fuse. Check ALL wire connectors as a lot of these come loose. Note, the circuit breaker will be popped out if tripped, IN is OK.

Kodak easyshare m320 charge light is green, but not charged

Hello Dead Battery, Well this sounds pretty easy compared to most questions I get. If the camera says the battery is dead, then the battery is dead !! the problem with batteries is they loose their capacity over time. The charger can not put any more in it and says it is charged. Just get a new one and give it a full charge and this should do the trick.
Best Regards, Russell

Charger model FY 4101 green light stay lite all the time, and hoveround battery is still dead

When the green light stays on regardless of dead battery, this means the battery is defective. The battery must present a load to the charger, which causes the charger voltage to drop, turning the charger on. When the battery is defective, it will not load the charger, and the charger voltage stays at full charge value. This of course, causes the green light to be switched on.

Battery charging issue

How old is the battery? They're only meant to last a couple years at most. If older, it's time to consider a new battery. Fortunately, generic batteries for your camera are very inexpensive these days. Here's some examples from Amazon. Some are better than others, so make sure that you read the reviews:

Red light keeps comming on and battery goes dead.

Alternator and stator....put a voltmeter on the battery - it should read about 12- 13 volts. Then start the bike.... when its running, the volts should increase.... if it doesnt....your charging system isnt working.

Garmin ique 3600 not working

Been there. If the unit will not reset with the hole in the back poke you need to disconnect and reconnect the battery. Use a small torx screw driver for the four screws in the corners. Gently split the back case off by the thumbwheel and pivot it around. the battery connector is a small white connector in the lower left hand corner. Be careful of the power switch, ir lamp cover, and plug gasket since when you open the case they sometimes make a break for freedom.
