Yes.unplug the trolling motor unit and then charge.as the charge what you get done gets utilized.so this does not work still after charging. also it could happen if the internal battery is not able to hold the charge as it goes faulty.replace the battery in such cases.

Minn Kota riptide ST green ready light will not turn on. It started flickering and will not turn on now. Pressed the battery test button and it shows that the batteries are fully charged. HELP!!!


Does the unit work without the auto pilot? Sounds like the auto pilot or the reciever is not functioning correctly.
Check and make sure the unit is grounded properly, you may need to run a test ground wire from the battery to the motor istelf to check this.
This is simple to do and takes 15 minutes. Starting in the battery compartment feed cable into the split-loom and continue feeding until reaching the control panel. Pull an extra 5 foot of cable and open dry hatch in rear by motor feed cable around and out to motor connections., Good time to check any circuit breakers
Try cycling the auto pilot though the modes.
there are 3 modes
to cycle through each mode
hold down the + and - key for 2 seconds
this cycles you to the next mode. Last but not least, try turning the unit on and spinning the prop by hand to see if it takes off, the motor migt be bound up slightly or have a bad spot on the brushes.

RT80A/P Intermittant Power


This could be two things, or three perhaps.

check the seals around the prop as water may be entering the unit. The motor might be seizing with heat. Not sure if it is a brushless motor, but next time it stalls, tap the motor head with a rubber mallet as it may re-seat the brushes if the motor has them.

After 4 years, salt water and storage, it will be overdue for a proper service.

Hard foot pedal


On the base of the foot pedal there is a tensioner for the cable. Try loosening or tightening that first. If you still have the manual from when you bought it, it is explained in deatil in there. It's a common issue - not to worry!

On a Minn Kota All Terrain trolling motor, what should the MOM/OFF/CON switch be set to when using the foot pedal manually?


You should only use the MOM (or momentary) setting when using the push button the foot pedal. Con will just keep the motor running and your foot control will only allow for direction and speed!

Minn Kota power drive trolling motor will not steer to the right **** huard my minnkot will only steer left. I do not have a foot pedal, use the wrist remote control. even goes left when pressing down...


There is a good chance that he control board is bad. This is a common problem with these units. I have replaced my control board twice.. When the control board goes out, the some function of the unit will not work correctly while other functions work fine. The first time mine went out, the prop motor would not work. The last time the board went out, the unit would only steer right.

Prop will not engage just beeps


is it 12 or 24 Volt system and check to see if there is a com switch that has to be turned on and there should be a click (switch) wich activates and allows the prop to turn. and are you using a foot pedal or a wireless remote?

Minn kota problem


Same deal with mine, was using it with no problems until I turned up the trust alittle and it just quit, never turned back on nor did the circuit breaker pop. Talked to Minn Kota thy said the board might be fried as well. So took it to a authorized dealer. I had 2 issues (only minor with the motor) Easy fix for mine was under the button on the foot pedal is a small round magnet about half the size of a pencil in diameter or so. The tech said it got recessed down to far and if it should happen again just pull it up again. So took it back home re-installed and no luck, just heard a tiny ticking noise from the foot pedal, no prop movement. SO I checked the batteeries, all good. Even though the connectons had very minor corrosion I decided to disconnect all and clean them. Re-connected them and now I am back in business. Dont understand it, but hey it works until I actually test it out on the lake. Hope it helped
