If it works on the computer then there is something wrong with the charger and not the GPS. Have a close look at the wire and the plug. Perhaps compair the plug to the one on the computer.

Its likely that you will need a new charger.

Hello! It seems that you have a problem with the laptop charger connector. It maybe in short circuit. You can try to look for some electronic workshop that works with reballing, BGA solder, etc., that might change it. In Portugal we have some, so I think in other countries you can find them to.

The chair won't power on and the batteries won't charge. I know the charger works because I have tried it on another chair. When I plug the charger into the chair the light stays green and nothing...


After you changed the batteries, did the power chair sit unused for several weeks? It sounds more like a battery or fuse issue than a charger issue. If there are blinking lights when you try to turn the power chair on (not while attached to the charger), or it comes on then goes back off by itself quickly, there may be something else going on.
1- The green light on the charger is telling you that the batteries are not accepting any more power, either they are fully charged or they have oxidized/gone solid from sitting without being put on the charger for too long.
2-The scrolling lights on the controller when the charger is plugged in just confirms that the chair is connected to the charger, so it sounds like everything is connected properly and working. The horn will work fine when it is attached to the charger as it is getting power from the wall outlet.
3- If it was a fuse issue, the lights would not come on at all when the charger is NOT attached, even after the battery has been fully charged, which is what it sounds like is going on. The fuses can blow if you operate the chair on a slick surface or one of the drive tires spin out. The batteries will be fully charged but because the circuit is not complete, the chair will not power on.

I recommend checking the fuses and changing them if necessary. You are in luck because this is a relatively easy and inexpensive fix as they are standard automotive fuses found at any auto parts store or even Walmart for around $2 each (you need 2). The fuses are located inside the gray battery covers under the seat, attached to the leads connected to the battery cables. The straps holding the covers on the batteries are tight, you may want to use a flat head screwdriver to help release the clips. While you are down there, inspect the tread on the tires, if it is worn or slick it may need to be replaced for safety.
I hope this information is helpful to you- good luck!

When I plug the battery in for charging, the charge light does not come on. only the power light on the charger


There are several solutions to this problem which I have seen twice in my technical career.
You indicated that the power light on the charger comes on which indicates it is plugged into a working AC wall outlet. Check to make sure the power switch of the charger is turned on. Make sure that the round charger plug is plugged all the way into the battery charger receptacle on the battery box.
Next, check the on-board fuse AND the circuit breaker. I have had this little 5 Amp automotive style fuse burn out on several go go's and the charger does not work. Pull back the cover over the charger port and look for the fuse in its center slot. With a good set of fingernails it can be pulled straight out and inspected. Use fine needle nose pliers if necessary. I am assuming the go go runs and the push-button for the 15 Amp circuit breaker is pushed in. If it is out and the go go is not running reset the breaker by pushing the white button in. There is a clear rubber boot over the button. In my experience, the 5 amp auto fuse is your most likely problem. By holding it up to the light you can see if the fuse wire inside is burnt causing an open circuit. Most auto and hardware stores have this fuse in stock. Bring the old one to the store for comparison. It is a 5 Amp ATO fuse.
The question my clients often ask is what caused the charger circuit to overheat and the fuse to blow? The simple answer is that the two 12 Amp hour batteries in the go go are probably old and weak. This causes the charger to work too hard and the circuit to overheat and the fuse to blow. These small batteries have a short life span of between 6 months and 1 year depending on type. I recommend the AGM (advanced glass mat) batteries for longevity. Also make sure the charger being used on the chair is the 2 Amp small charger that came with the chair (There is a label on the charger to verify this). A larger charger will burn the batteries(shortening their life) and burn out the 5 Amp on-board fuse. Hope this helps.

David, If you are not getting the yellow light on the charger then you have a problem with the charger. What voltage are you getting at the batteries when charging? You can check the charger by removing the end plate where the lights are to see if there is a fuse on the output side of the charger. if there is check to see if the fuse is blown. There probably is a fuse on the other end but since the red light comes on it is good. If you plug the charger into the charger port and put your ear to it you should hear a hum coming from the charger. Hope this helps you

Laptop died suddenly and is not charging


Take the battery out and discharge the capacitors by holding down the power button for 15 seconds. plug in the charger without the battery in to see if you get a charge light. If you do, replace battery and plug in charger and power on laptop. If this does not work, you may have to pull the cmos battery for 15 minutes and try it again.

I can't charge my GPS while I am in the car


Verify that the car cigarette lighter outlet is working. Do you have something that you could plug into the lighter like a light?

With the car running plug the Garmin into the cigarette lighter outlet. Does it come on without pushing the ON button? If the answer is no then there is either a problem with the cable or the cigarette lighter outlet. It should come on by itself if the lighter is working. Also are you using Garmin cables and DC adapter?
