Key won't shut engine off

I have a Pontoon Boat with an electric engine (Minn Kota E-Drive). The controller (throttle control) has key in it yet when I turn the key to the off position, it stays on. As a result, I cannot charge it as the system does not allow it to be on and charge at the same time. I have returned the controller and received a new one. It does the same thing! I'm at wits end....The only way to turn it off is to yank the negative or posive cable going to the engine.

Check the short multiwire control cable ( the small that come out from the inside of the motor not the long that goes to the throttle ). On my motor, there was a short circuit in this cable as a result of keeping the main relay on even if the key was at off.

    The trolling motor will just quit sometimes if I shake the handle several times it will start back up


    sounds like a loose or bad connection on the throttle switch will need to open the control tiller and check connections if you have a meter ohm out the wires at the connector and switch to make sure all connections are good this is a bit involved and I recommend doing on a bench not in the boat If you need more detail just ask You know this sucker comes with a 2 year warranty right !

    The motor has two speeds. Very fast forward and very fast reverse. The speed control is not functioning


    A lot of these units have 2 year warranty. Minn Kota web site list authorized warranty repair centers. The foot control unit most likely got water in the digital switch. If not under warranty any longer, open it up and see if any water bubbles in the sealed board where speed switch makes contact. If so you will need new foot control.

    My Johnson Escape boat w/ Minn Kota engine stopped running


    I've had the same problem. It steams from the control panel. I took and ran a seprate ground wire directly to the motor. 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 replace rotary switch and circuit breaker. These also are trouble-some parts.

    probably an endura 50 would be a better fit for a potoon boat. assuming the boat is normal size. if its a smaller one then this motor might work just fine. give it a try and see if it moves you about fast enough for your taste.
