Get a multi meter to check what the battery is putting out, in volts, at no load then what it does as you open the throttle. A "duff" battery might show a decent reading off load but when asked to supply a bit of current (power) the voltage drops due to the internal resistance of the cells. The same would happen if there was a bad connection, but you would read that at motor side.
Hello there: the 24v tells you that you need 24 volts ok so what you will need to do is to get 2 12 volt batteries and put them in series than run this to the motor this is usually done with a disconnect switch in the line with your start switch ok? you can also contact the manufacture of the motor for further details Hope this is very helpful Best regards Michael
Usually this means that there is a crack in the coil cord or there is something metal close to the head of the motor. The coil cord can be checked while you are out fishing next time by grabbing the cord (black coiled cord from base to head of the motor) and stretching it and pulling on it. If the motor reacts to the pulling then that's the problem. best of luck! Mike
I had the same problems with my 70lb, my motor just quit while on the lake, took it to a minn kota service repair shop. I had two issues. One was the little magnet under the button on the foot pedal got recessed to far down, the tech told me if it happened again pop the button off and pull the magnet up some. Simple fix. I took it home put it back on the boat and nothing just a slight ticking noise heard from the pedal with no prop movement. So I thought maybe somethin was wrong with one of my batteries. Unhooked everything, tested both of them, all good. Even though there was hardly any corrosion, I clean everything, hooked it up and "WALLA"! Power! Problem solved, for now. Waitng to test again out on the lake
Reverse the polarity on the trolling motor by taking the trolling motor apart and turning ithe motor housingt 180 degrees and bolt it back up. The polarity will be straight then. I did the same thing when I pulled the armature back in.
