Hello james gray. Your description is for a hand control type motor with the control knob on the handle. Disconnect the power to the motor. Carefully disassemble the handel making note of procedures. Check your wiring to control. It would be helpful to use a multimeter to check the voltage on the wiring connections. This should confirm the wiring shorting or most likely a bad switch. The switch could be found from a local electrical supply store or a marine store.

I THINK what you're running into here is a poor power connection. (either positive or ground) It would appear to me that as the connection heats up, it is unable to carry the amperage needed to keep the unit running.

Carefully inspect, clean and lubricate with silicone spray the connections, (pay particular attention to the terminals at the power supply AND the fuse holder.)

Hope this is helpful.

Your description of the motor running but no output certainly does sound mechanical. Sometimes things get stripped. Usually there is some other sounds, sometimes not, based on the number of teeth, etc.
I would be tempted to open up the gear case of the unit.... One detail of interest to me, do you have an opinion of the position of the device when it fails? For example: extended or retracted always has the unit stop.... The reason is imagine a tooth missing at one position, ....if you somehow got past that position, presto function....until the unit went back across the problem position....
I expect that there are electronics that decide what your auto pilot should do, but it boils down to a motorized unit, and IF, as you describe, that units' motor is actuated, I would expect output of some kind. The picture shows what looks to be a tiller mount controller, also there are other designs that may connect to your wheel, or some connect down at the rudder post...All need to go one way or the other when the motor is energized.
Do keep after and make this unit work, I think it helps you be able to run the vessel with less help....

I have a jbl mr-145 in a hot tub. It keeps powering on and off???

I have the same model stereo in a brand new hot tub that was having the same issue. To fix it all u need to do is pull the front cover off to access the pump controls and in there you will find a black box where a power cable runs yo the stereo. There are two screws that open a little door in the black box. In there you will need a small flat head screwdriver to move a redswit over to the 110 volts position. Turn the radio on and it should work. That black box just controls the power to the stereo.

Burning out fuses on trolling motor at battery

not enough info. I went the the min kota website, they show four maxxum 80's at different it a 12v 24v or larger? without a year model I'll have no reference to what wiring schematic Is the fuse connected inline with the trolling motor? what size amp fuse are you burning up? well I can give you some troubleshooting tips. tools to buy (1) amp gauge. if you are unfamilier with amp gauges make sure you get instruction book with gauge or you could burn yourself. Toubleshooting(1) Remove cover off minn kota trolling motor. black cover ontop of unit were the foot control wires go into.turn over foot control remove cover (2) check for corrosion. any exposed terminals should be cleaned.(3) go to your batteries and clean all connections. make sure the batteries are fully charged.(4) take amp gauge and test positive wire for amp draw as you tun on trollling motor and run it through all speeds. if batteries are in the rear away from trolling motor get a 2nd person to control trolling motor. if the trolling motor is more than a 12v system you will have more than one positive lead to test.GOAL. What your trying to find out is how many amps the trolling motor is really pulling. and at what speeds. under a load in the water and out of the many more amps than the fuse raiting? newer trolling motors come with inline breakers not fuses so I'm guessing your using 30 amp fuses. again without more info i can only guess.
