No the red light comes on to show that there is power going to the Satnav. In most Garmins the Battery Strength meter is in the home screen. Generally people leave the satnav plugged in when driving regardless of whether the battery is charged or not.

Charger not working

When the red light is on it is to indicate that the charger is getting power from the wall outlet. If there is a second light that normally comes on Green when charging pay close attention to it when you first plug the charger in. See if it blinks even once then turns off. If it does that means the charger is not seeing any battery voltage at the plug that goes into the chair. If the green light does not blink at all then it usually means the charger is defective. Also most wheelchair battery chargers will not charge the batteries if the chair is to dead to even turn on.

I have an HP8402B battery charger. Its plugged in but no red or yellow light and no fan. The plug is getting power. Can you help.

I'm sorry to hear that but if no lights are coming on it means the charger is usually dead. You will need to replace it. It will be very difficult to find someone to repair it.

I left my garmin nuvi 260w in the car over night and now it wont turn on even when plugged in. I think it just got to cold in the car but i am not sure.

Before you can detect if there is a problem with your garmin nuvi, You need to carry out some tests. First you need to check your battery, then you check your charger, then you check the device itself to know where the problem is from and how to solve them.
First test is the battery, try out a friends well tested battery into the device and power it on, if it comes on, then it means the battery of your device is either weak or dead, try to charge it on another device then power it on to see if it will come on. If it comes on, then the battery is alright and if it does not come on, then it means the battery is bad and you need to replace it.
Next test is for you try out your charger on another device to see if it will charge the device, if it charges the device, then it means it is alright and if it does not charge the device, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced.
The last test is for you to connect your garmin nuvi to a computer and power it on to see if it will come on. If it does not come on, then it means there is a problem with the connection port or there is an internal problem or something.
After carrying out these tests, you will be able to tell where the problem is from and fix it at the same time.,
Hope this information was helpful to you.

My garmin 1350T just shut off and will not turn back on

If your garmin nuvi shuts off and refuses to turn back on, even if you press the power button, then it means the battery is weak and cannot power on the nuvi. Try to take out the battery and reinsert it back it then try to turn it on to see if it will turn on, if it does not still turn on, then borrow a battery from a friend and use it to test your nuvi, if it powers on, then your battery is either weak or dead.
Insert the battery into another gps and charge it with another charger for about 2 hours to see if it will hold a charge, try to use it to power your nuvi on to see if it will work. If it works, then it means your charger was not charging it initially. That means the charger is bad and need to be replaced, but if the battery does not turn on your nuvi after charging it for about 2 hours, then it means the battery is bad and need to be replaced.
Either ways both the charger and the battery need to be checked to know which of the two is faulty.
Carrying out the test will show you the faulty component and the solution is for you to replace it with a new one.
Hope this was helped you.

I got a Peg Perego Charger when I plug it into the battery no light comes on at all. Does that mean the battery is completely dead?

Not necessarily. There should be some type of light on the charger- green means charged, red or orange, not charged.

If no light comes on, it's the charger.

The red light indicates its charging.  My guess is that the battery is dead and will nto hold a charge.  This is an older model phone and the lives on the batteries is 1-3 years at most.
