SOURCE: motorguide wireless 24volt trolling motor,

Hi thommo5473,

Do you have your owner's manual? If not, here is a website with the document: http://www.motorguide.com/userfiles/file/Support/OwnersManuals/2011%20Wireless%20Manual.pdf

From what you've said, I'm not sure exactly what is going on. The instructions state that the control will beep when it's on and a button is pushed, then you'll get a longer beep when it goes off.

Now, the fact that you don't get a speed change... did you just push the button and let go or have you tried just holding the button down? Just pushing and letting go will give just a slight change, but holding the button down will give a greater speed change.

In the troubleshooting section, they give things to do if something doesn't work, such as reprogramming, the control doesn't have the serial number of the remote entered into its memory.
Other reasons for problems are weak batteries, etc.

Try the things in the troubleshooting section of the owner's manual, then if that doesn't work, call the service number in their. They should help you out. If something's wrong with the system, then they should replace it.

I hope this helps, if it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

SOURCE: Wire going to prop of Motorguide trolling motor shorted

Unless you are mechanically inclined, dont attempt this. Take the lower unit apart by removing the prop and removing the two bolts that hold the forward and aft housing to the center housing. Fwd being the cone shaped part. Pull the aft housing away from the motor so you can inspect the connections to the board that holds the brushes and the soldered wiring terminals. You should find the solder missing from at least one of the terminals that connects the wiring from the foot switch to the speed control windings inside the aft housing. Clean up the terminal and wiring and re-solder. Also re-flow the solder on the other terminals. Clean up the seals and the area where the seals meet the housing parts. Replace seals if damaged. Reassemble the lower unit and torque the bolts 45-50 in-lbs and no more otherwise you will fail the seals. This problem is due to a "cold" solder joint that creates a high resistance to elec current flow and heats enough to melt the solder. This is a result of poor quality control at the manufacturer. Good luck.

Hey Chris,, you are starting a project (or wanting to) that is going to be problematic... It will be easier to go buy a new trolling motor with the money you are going to spend attempting this conversion... the newer trolling motors are so much more efficient...

I don't have any slow trolling speeds. Only fast speeds on my Pro Series 6700 trolling motor. Any ideas? Also, it is a 24 volt system. How do I properly hook up the batteries. The two batteries are...


To hook up to 24 volts you need to join a positive cable from one battery to the source[motor or controller] and the the negative cable goes to the positive of the next of the next battery,then the negative [of battery #2] goes to ground,same for all 24 volt systems.If the slower speeds don't work then the rheostat in the accelerator handle could be at fault,but getting the 24 volts sorted out may fix everything.

Trolling motor stays on same speed no matter where I set the speed 10 -100. It is at a mid range speed.


I just recently had a simialr problem. No speed control and motor only ran at 100. I talked to the minn kota tech rep and sent him my control board and he said it had a bad potentiometer...however, I had to buy a control board to fix the problem ($215). Hate to say it but sounds like you may need a new control board.

Burning out fuses on trolling motor at battery


not enough info. I went the the min kota website, they show four maxxum 80's at different voltages.is it a 12v 24v or larger? without a year model I'll have no reference to what wiring schematic Is the fuse connected inline with the trolling motor? what size amp fuse are you burning up? well I can give you some troubleshooting tips. tools to buy (1) amp gauge. if you are unfamilier with amp gauges make sure you get instruction book with gauge or you could burn yourself. Toubleshooting(1) Remove cover off minn kota trolling motor. black cover ontop of unit were the foot control wires go into.turn over foot control remove cover (2) check for corrosion. any exposed terminals should be cleaned.(3) go to your batteries and clean all connections. make sure the batteries are fully charged.(4) take amp gauge and test positive wire for amp draw as you tun on trollling motor and run it through all speeds. if batteries are in the rear away from trolling motor get a 2nd person to control trolling motor. if the trolling motor is more than a 12v system you will have more than one positive lead to test.GOAL. What your trying to find out is how many amps the trolling motor is really pulling. and at what speeds. under a load in the water and out of the water.how many more amps than the fuse raiting? newer trolling motors come with inline breakers not fuses so I'm guessing your using 30 amp fuses. again without more info i can only guess.

On a Minn Kota All Terrain trolling motor, what should the MOM/OFF/CON switch be set to when using the foot pedal manually?


You should only use the MOM (or momentary) setting when using the push button the foot pedal. Con will just keep the motor running and your foot control will only allow for direction and speed!
