Go Live 1535 stopped working in car - battery issue - but works off laptop

My Go Live 1535 stopped working in car (either of two ports); It starts up normally, but shuts down within a minute; error says battery issue - but works off laptop; Is this perhaps the 'lighter' portion of the cord or is it an issue of the internal battery or something else?

    Don't use a USB port in the auto for charging the device, only the cig lighter outlet.

    Thanks for trying. My 16 year old car doesn't even have USB ports. The lighter ports (2) no longer work with my GPS. Since the cord from the GPS to my laptop USB works, I'm thinking it might be something wrong with that cord's 'lighter' connection. ( I could be wrong.) I'm not sure if this is a part that I can replace, but I think I'll try to find this and try this first.

    Thanks! This is a great idea that didn't occur to me (duh). Much appreciated!
