Hi Buz and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially and other than "... push sw...", proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):• check/clean the terminals and connectors of the power cable particularly the red & black wire/terminals;• similarly, check/clean the pins and sockets of the multi-pin connector to/of the Garmin;• verify sufficient/correct voltage supplied to the GPSMAP 498.The above are the only easy user doable tries as all others would require the use of a volt/multi-meter.
