Question about Boating
My trolling motor stays at power when foot switch is released.The constant on switch is off when this happens. To stop motor i have to slide power control to 0. Can a certain wire be disconnected to stop this?
It is indeed the Relay on the board. I have successfully used a dremel tool and dremelled the bottom of the board to unsolder the relay and dremelled the old relay off the top of the board. Then you mix up some epoxy and epoxy the new relay in and fill in the holes on the bottom of the board. It is a common relay and worth about $10.00.

Hello dtspins2. Your footswitch is stuck. Disconnect the DC. Remove the bottom of the foot control, check the wiring for insulation broken off and wires shorting out, and disconnect a wire(note color of wires) from switch, reconnect power to confirm motor don't run. Remove the switch and contact your local electrical supply store(may cost less) or marine store for replacement. Good Luck.
