Any ideas what else could be wrong
A silly point. The fuse in the plug from your Garmin is OK?
Failing that, to find out which contact you need. Couldn't you make a simple multi meter with a light bulb and 2 wires? Conect the bulb to the 2 wires then plug in your garmin lead
Then connect one wire to your bike frame as an earth, then trial and error with each contact will find your live lead on the garmin lead. Once found it should be easy to find the earth contact afterwards. Once done, if it worked
You will be able to find out if your Garmin is OK or not. If you can't find out which contacts using this method then it maybe your Garmin lead that's defunct
Hope this helps as I'm not an auto electrician.
