Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

Sorry to hear of any issue you are having with your device.

To help you with this issue, may I ask:

1) The AGE of the device?

2) WHEN where the 2 trips you mention taken?

3) HOW LONG have you left the device connected to the charger before attempting to use it?

4) Are you using the ORIGINAL vehicle power adapter when trying to use it now?

Thanks
