Default G4 Battery Error

I have a Phase 2 G4. I left it in the car last night off. When I came out this morning there was a low battery indication. I tried plugging it in to the wire that I use and have used in the car. It briefly powered on said extremely low battery. It then went blank and stayed that way. When I got home I tried a battery pull as well as charging it the same way I do every night. Still no luck. Any suggestions??

If you have an extremely low battery you need to leave it plugged in while turned off to let it charge.

When you plug it in at home does the red light on top come on, indicating its charging?

My only thought for troubleshooting is try another data cable and wall plug.
Then let it sit for a while as it tries to recover from the extremely low battery.

Did a battery pull and then left it on the charger. It is now fired up and running. It was weird.

Lithium Ion / Poly batteries are like that. If they go really low voltage (below low battery spec) they will go into a slow recovery charge to build it back up to normal low voltage. Once its there then the rapid or normal charging can begin.

Glad its back up and running.
