Reverse the polarity on the trolling motor by taking the trolling motor apart and turning ithe motor housingt 180 degrees and bolt it back up. The polarity will be straight then. I did the same thing when I pulled the armature back in.

VONNY MY MOTOR DOES THE SAME THING AND I FOUND THAT THE DUST OF THE MAGNETS IN THE HEAD WAS CAUSING THE MOTOR TO STICK I CLEANED INSIDE WITH ELECTRICAL CLEANER AND IT STARTED TO WORK FINE BUT YOU MAY HAVE SOMETHING ELSE GOING ON AND ALSO MAY SURE YOU ARE NOT COVERED UNDER WARRANTY IF YOU JUST GOT THE BOAT

Mine did the same thing and i think that it could be the relay under the switch cause i had power when i directly touched both neg. and pos. so i would diffently take a look at that.

I had the same problems with my 70lb, my motor just quit while on the lake, took it to a minn kota service repair shop. I had two issues. One was the little magnet under the button on the foot pedal got recessed to far down, the tech told me if it happened again pop the button off and pull the magnet up some. Simple fix. I took it home put it back on the boat and nothing just a slight ticking noise heard from the pedal with no prop movement. So I thought maybe somethin was wrong with one of my batteries. Unhooked everything, tested both of them, all good. Even though there was hardly any corrosion, I clean everything, hooked it up and "WALLA"! Power! Problem solved, for now. Waitng to test again out on the lake
