If you know the motor and foot controls aren't the issue then I would investigate fuses wiring and connectors.

Hi,

For starters, here is a schematic:

http://www.mikesreelrepair.com/schematics/displayimage.php?pos=-4777

Check to see if there is appropriate voltage getting to the switch (with an ohm meter).
You can (please do this carefully) disconnect the battery positive and negative as well as the motor red and motor black wires and connect the Batt positive to the motor red and the Batt negative to the motor black. If the motor runs, the switch is faulty. If it doesn't then I suspect the motor needs looking at.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    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.

    Can i convert my bow mounted mini kota 40 to a transom mount?


    No you cannot. Due to the hard mounted foot controls, it has to stay a bow mount.

    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!

    How do you operate the motor? I have no details as to how the motor operates. Its a minn kota trolling motor that mounts on the front of my boat. I need to know how to operate the foot peddle.


    The pedal has generally four functions:
    1) Forward and back on the pedal make the motor go left and right (push forward to turn the motor right, push back to turn it left)
    2) Momentary power - the little 'button' towards the top will engage the motor as long as you press down on it.
    3) Selector Swith - on the side of the foot pedeal there is a switch with the following settings Con - Off - Mom (Continuous - keeps the motor going all the time, Off - well it's off and Mom - will only go when you press the momentary button).
    4) Speed select - the knob on the left controlls how fast the motor goes.

    It takes some getting used to but offers tremendous control and hands free operation!

    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.
