Question about Minn Kota Maxxum 80 Freshwater Bow Mount With Us2
Hey SCOTT ..
Get a multimeter (to check voltage) Verify you have 24 volts coming to the front plug. Now - VERIFY that you are getting 24 volts to the switch. ..All OK..- Now to check the power switch. Disconnect the two wires on the power switch and CAREFULLY connect them by hand.. now SAFELY see if the prop will turn. If the switch is bad, bypassing it will make the prop spin!
..If the prop still does not work,, keep following the voltage.. For more help, trust these guys!:

Hello Jim. You have lost your power some where. Start with the wire & terminal connections to the battery. Open the bottom of the foot pedal and check the wiring connections there. Note be very careful here for you have the battery still connected. You may have a fuse in line some where blown. You can check for voltage with a VOM(volt meter) on the wire terminals. Good Luck.

My guess is the motor has leaked water into the lower motor assy (behind the prop). and needs to be cleaned up and the brushes replaced.
here's a schematic:
You can try this to check for water leakage:-
1) disconnect from power supply
2) remove the prop
3) you will see 2 bolt heads behind where the prop was. Remove ONLY ONE of them for now.
4) if you see the bolt (it's about 8" long) is covered in what looks to be blask, oily/watery or rusty condition then you know that you'll need to overhaul it.
5) if it IS the motor assy, remove the other bolt and disassemble everything noting their location.
6) I would recommend replacing the brushes Part# 188-052 and the seal kit 2883460.

SOURCE: trolling motor will not operate.
it seems like you have a short have you taken it apart sometimes a wire can fray and it will cause things to act funny see if there is a loose wire you can also use a digital meter to see if you have continuity on both ends of one wire disconnect wire so nothing is hooked to it an select continuity or the beep noise indicator and hold on both ens of wire this will let you know if there is a break in the wire it should beep if it is good

Hi Thank you for contacting fixya.com
Be careful when using your motor when fishing in thick vegetation. If this wraps around the prop it causes overloads and higher currents. The high currents cause general overheating which affects all parts of the motor. Check for low battery voltages and for loose cable connections that cause resistance and loss of motor power.
1. Check for loose connections in the speed switch and potentiometer.
2. Check for loose connections within the top housing.
3. Check the rotary switch for burning or other visible damage.
4. Check contact continuity or resistance with a multi-meter or short out each speed terminal to verify the switch contacts. If switch is in good condition one or more speed coils may have failed.
Lastly you need the right batteries, the right charging system, the right wiring and the right charging to keep your trolling motor online.
