There is a good chance that the 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, 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.

The **** is due to motor.The motor is causing the ****.Check the trolling motor. If, while holding a heading, the ( auto pilot) AP motor steering system seems to "****" back and forth a few degrees it may be due to excessive gear "lash" or looseness in the steering gear system. -------- Step 1. To dampen this oscillation of the motor lower unit, make sure that the 2-piece aluminum stop collar on the motor shaft (between the lower shaft collar and motor bung) is firmly slid up against the lower shaft collar bushing and tightened in place. ------ Step 2. If problem persists, install new steering clutch gear system and steering motor output gear (P/N 2770215). -------- -------------- Pull the motor apart and see what everything looks like inside, bearings good, brushes moving in-out, brush holder not melted, wiring in good condition. The motors can be rebuilt.---------- There is service manual for minn kota powerdrive V2 with the foot control auto-pilot.To get service manual click this link below:--- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/06/minn-kota-repair-manual.html ------------------ This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Ok, I have done this quite a few times so take heed, I am not familiar with the
MK65 but I am sure the principal is the same on all of these motors..
Take off the top half of the plastic head and look on the center shaft. Your two foot control wires wrap around a plastic spool which sits on the shaft with a spline fit. If you have not done this before, get a pad and pencil and draw the way the wires come in, lay and attach in that plastic spool - because when you pull it off, if they come off you will be scratching your head wondering what the hell you did. You can figure it out but why think if you don't have to, its not as simple as it sounds because spool rotates, the wires wrap round and round etc.. Slack your cable tension adjustment screw in the footpedal all the way off, then what you have to do is slide that plastic spool off, and rotate it until you have the right position. The object of this, is to have the motor set pointing straight ahead, with your footpedal in the middle incline position, so you have full travel in each direction up and down. When you do this, you have to be aware that with the cables loose, they can come off the cams in the footpedal if you don't keep tension on them. Good luck.
