Do you plug it into the cigarette lighter or is it installed (wired) behind the cigarette lighter. If so and you happen to plug something into the lighter you run the risk of shorting out our friend TomTom (I did it twice)

My tomtom go 510 will not charge in car but ok at home

The Car chargers are generally the defective unit.
I have also faced a similar issue as the spring loaded cigarette lighter was pushing the charger causing it to disconnect.

can you connect it to your usb port on your computer? if so try to connect and use it. dont worry about charging it just use it to see if its working ok. i dont know why they put a battery that is not replaceable in those. you must send it back to them to replace, I keep mine on power all the time. check this out first and see if its a malfunction or works ok.

Tom tom wont turn on

Test your Power Cable for Voltage Out. If it is working properly, then your TOM TOM bit the dust but I am thinking that you are out of Power and will not turn back on unless you get her charged up.

If it is charged up, then PUSH and HOLD the POWER BUTTON for 30 Seconds and this is how you RESET the GPS.

If resetting does not work, and you have Power. Time to get a new GPS. Sorry

My DS Lite wont charge! Help!

Try another charger, yours may be faulty. Alternatively,the battery may need replacing as it is no longer holding charge, these can be obtained very inexpensively from Ebay and you will just need a small cross head screwdriver to remove the cover on the back of the DS lite, then tap the unit in your hand to dislodge and remove the battery.

My tomtom will not turn on. I have had it plugged into the car charger for several hours. Help?

try a reset first, i will assume you cant do this, get a clip or pin switch off the unit and remove the sd card, then push the tool into the small reset hole underneath and hold for 15 seconds, then turn your unit back on and replace the sd card, it should then work if not it could be the battery has worn out as they are attached to the charger all the time when driving, hope this helps

How do I reset to factory settings how to reset factory settings on tom tom one

Which Model of Tom Tom One ?

XL

2nd Edition

make sure you're fully charged, remove any optional memory cards (depends on the unit) there should be a reset hole, place a straightened paperclip into the hole and press for 15 seconds.

140/130/125

make sure you're fuly charged, press and hold the on/off button for about 15 seconds until the unit restarts
