    I have the same problem (only 5th works) and I replaced the speed selector switch on the side and that solved nothing. I have the switch on the side of the foot pedal (rabbit) on order as it appeared to not be operating properly when tested with a meter

    Did the side selector switch fix it? I have a similar problem...I lost one speed at a time, until finally none of the speeds work, I might have more of a 5 speed selector switch problem. Thanks.

I too had the same problem. This happens because of bad solder joints where the speed coils inside the lower unit connect to the wires from the selector switch. This "cold" solder joint has a high resistance to electrical current and therefore will become hot enough to meilt the solder. If you take the lower unit apart you will find solder laying on the bottom. Just clean up the terminal and wires and re-solder and it will be fine. I also recommend you re-flow the solder on all the other terminals as well. This is a quality control problem at the manufacturer.

Hey 217,
Get a sheet of 3/16" aluminum plate that is at least twice as wide as your trolling motor mount and at least 12" longer than the mount. Secure the plate to the current deck.. align the front edge flush.
You might want to radius the edges of the plate and secure it with rounded head sheet metal screws.. This will make the mount much stronger and last!!

you may have a shaft key broken in the transmission. 4th is usually 1-1 drive and does not need the key. before removing the transmission, check to make sure the linkage is OK by shifting gears at the transmission. If you can get other gears at the transmission, then the problem is the shifter.

Motorguide Trolling motor has low thrust in all five speeds


I have a 4 speed with 48 lbs of thrust. On mine, 1 through 3 will move me out pretty well, however, 4th is similar to an overdrive gear in a car or truck and is meant more for maintaining a speed with less draw on the amps.

I certainly wouldn't want to take off with it. I suspect it is the same with your 5 speed. The boat needs to be up to speed and then those two gears will maintain it, with 5th being optimal as far as low draw in amperage.
