Foot pedal on Motorguide is out of time with steering...

I have one of my steering cables popping loose from the bottom of the foot pedal. I reinstalled the cable and adjusted the tension. However, the foot pedal should be level when the motor is set to go straight ahead. It is off time just a little. Can someone tell me how to calibrate/set steering on the dual cable MotorGuide Tour edition trolling motor? i have a tracker pro series trolling moter and the stearing cable went bad in it can someone plz help me find a new one

There should be a couple of allen screws on the shaft that you can loosen, which should allow you to swing the motor head in the direction you want it to be pointing for the desired pedal position. Tighten and carry on.

How to change brake light switch

You'll have to drop the lower dashboard panel to access the switch. There are two clips on the bottom/back behind the pedals. One is white and behind the brake pedal, the other attaches to the left foot plastic floor mount. The white clip can be rotated to come off of the dash panel. The left foot floor mount can be removed with the recessed nut near the top and then separated from the dash panel. There are 5 screws affixing the dash panel to the framework. Two are obvious, on the bottom corners. One is accessible after removing the fusebox cover. The other two are next to the steering wheel and are accessible after popping the small shroud piece off from around the steering column. The shroud is held in place only by clips. After dropping the panel, the brake switch can be found at the top of the brake pedal arm. Disconnect the wiring clip from it and then turn the switch counterclockwise. It will pop out after about an 1/8 of a turn. Should be about a 20 minute job in total. Good Luck!

My foot controlled trolling motor pedal is slipping when turning

Your cable may have broken or slipped and maybe bending rather than shifting in the sleeve. You may also want to check and make sure all set screws and cable locks are secure.

I have a motorguide trolling motor and the front

With the top off take the six screws out and lift the cable and gear out. Next put your foot pedal at mid position. Then make sure the motor is pointed forward and reinstall the slider gear and the six screws. Last put the top on and make sure the arrow indicator is pointing forward and thats it.

Prop spins slow on any speed on the foot pedal

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.
