Hello hfreel, check control board and wiring in the head of the trolling motor, The variable speed control element or the connection has shorted to provide only full speed. Merry Christmas.

SOURCE: can you wire a minn kota foot control

Lost power to trolling motor. Fuses are good, and am getting power to the plug. I replaced the control board about 3 years ago, and the attenuator never worked right. How can I tell if power is making it to the control board?

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!

TOOK THE BOLTS OUT OF MINN KOTA AND CANT GET THEM IN. 2 SHORT.


Hi!
Here's a schematic:
Max 74 Bowmount
Make sure the end housing #7has a small mark in it pointed to the bottom (towards the skeg). The bolts can be a pain to line up!
Also make sure the armature is all the way forward it can go....past the brushes is the toughest part to get through and lined up. Keep it up, you'll get it!
Best of luck
Mike

Minn Kota power drive trolling motor will not steer to the right **** huard my minnkot will only steer left. I do not have a foot pedal, use the wrist remote control. even goes left when pressing down...


There is a good chance that he 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, the 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.

Where can i get a circuit board for my minn kota foot pedal Part # is 9901-200c


http://www.northlandmarine.com/MinnKotaQuickRef.htm

You need your serial number of the trolling motor, length of shaft, and thrust poundage.

or you could call Minn Kota direct and give them the same information at 800-227-6433.

Ran aground on lake,now stuck on high speed,can't lower speed


My Minn Kota 55 powerdrive had the same problem except mine occurred while it was trailered in the yard. High speed only, everything else worked great. From what I could research the control module is a frequent problem. Took a chance and purchased a new control module and this cured the problem. Maybe this happening and running aground was just concidental.
