Question about Minn Kota Maxxum 55 Freshwater Bow Mount Trolling Motor

Open Question

Propeller/motor does not work

Motor was not working at all, then cleaned the pins and leads and now the steering works but the propeller does not. I can hear a clicking in the motor area when I step on the control pad but nothing happens. Battery shows a full charge on charger and on test button on trolling motor. I think all connectors are clean now and I'm clicking noise in the motor makes me think that the electrical connections are OK and trying to start the motor. Any advice?
Also, the plug is wired with a Red, Orange, and black wire going to a 3 prong male plug. I want to hook this up to a battery in the garage to test so I do not have to take back to the boat. How do I do that? Is the Red positive and the black neg and the orange an on/off switch wire???? Can I directly wire the black and red pins to the battery leads?
thx

SOURCE: My trolling motor makes a roar type sound when I

There is a plastic race that holds the rear of the armature inside. It can get worn out and sloppy. My 40 AT was doing this and like yours, when it's out of the water it's fine. You only hear/see the problem when the motor is under load. Mine was caused by leaving it in the water when running around the lake with my 6 hp outboard. A good MinnKota repairman can fix if he knows what he's looking for. I had to take mine to two different dealers before the problem was found. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: bought a 1995 Four Winns boat inthe dash it has a

I own a 1995 Four Winns and what you need is a Lowrance LSM-1 depth finder unit. It accepts the two pin lead from the transducer and send the depth reading to the dashboard display via the 6-pin connector. There is also a three wire harness (red/blk/wht) that connects to a power supply.

The reason I know all this is my depth finder fried a couple years ago so I removed the Lowrance LSM-1 from the boat in order to find a replacement. Unfortunately, this was an OEM part that is not available from Four Winns or any aftermarket source. Probably your best bet is to look in a boat salvage yard or purchase an aftermarket depth finder.

    Assuming you have washer fluid and you can hear the pump with no flow at the main line I would guess the turbine has separated from the pump shaft.

    2007 S40 WONT START ''POWER STEERING FAILURE'' CAME ON


    The power steering is actually ELECTRIC steering on this car Most common and basically only failure is 2 30 amp fuses in under hood fuse block Only other thing is mechanical and would set a trouble code and sat power steering on your dash. FYI. Jump Starting your car from the +- Terminals found near the FUSE box under the hood, will Blow the Fuses for the Power Steering. Always Jump start your car from the Battery Terminals in the Trunk

    Locate the power steering pump and hoses on your vehicle. The power steering pump is located at the front of your engine, near the top of the motor. It will have a black fill cap on it that is labeled "power steering fluid."
    1)Clean the outside of the pressurized power steering pump hoses and the power steering pump with clean shop rags to remove any oil deposits. Check the exterior of the lines to identify any signs of steering fluid leakage.
    2)Start the motor and turn your steering wheel back and forth several times to cause the pressure in the steering pump to build up. Turn the engine off and recheck the hoses for fluid leaks. Examine the power steering pump for any signs of cracks or damage. If your power steering pump is damaged you need to replace it with a new pump by removing the bolts that hold the pump onto the bracket, taking the pump belt off the pulley and disconnecting the hoses. Replace the power steering pump by reattaching the hoses with a screw clamp and attaching the pump to the bracket. Place the belt around the pump pulley and apply pressure by pulling back on the pump and tightening the belt by using a socket wrench to tighten the bolt on the bracket. You can find a power steering pump for your vehicle at your local automotive.
    3)Check the fittings and clamps for any signs of wear or leakage and tighten any loose clamps with a screwdriver. Inspect the hose leading from the power steering pump back into the firewall that leads to the steering wheel. If you find that a leak has developed in the power steering hose that leads to the steering column, consult a mechanic or take your vehicle to a local service center and have an inspection done.
    4)Remove damaged power steering hoses by taking the cap off of the power steering pump and then unscrewing the clamp on the hose. Recover draining power steering fluid by placing a clean container below the hose or power steering pump when you loosen the hoses and allow the fluid to drain into the container.
    5)Repair power steering hoses where the damaged area is close to the end of the hose by trimming off the affected area with a utility or sharp knife and reattaching the hose with a screw clamp by tightening the clamp with a screwdriver. For damage that is in the middle of the hose or near a section that can't be repaired, replace the hose with a power steering hose that can be purchased from any automotive supply store in your area or online at an automotive supply website, such as the ones listed below in the resources section, and connect the new hose to the power steering pump with a screw clamp.
    6)Fill the power steering pump to the proper level with power steering fluid and replace the cap. Start the vehicle motor to test the system. Once you have verified that the power steering system is working properly, shut off the engine.
    This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

    Ex40-2 slow on one track motor,may be loosing digging power when working hard,have change hydraulic filter and track motors oil


    I am assuming this is a Hitachi EX40-2 mini-excavator. Two tests that need to be run. First is the propel motor pressure equal to both propels? Secondly, but possibly more important is to check the slow propel motor for excessive case drain. This would indicate the propel motor is worn out. Find in your hitachi service manual the accepted amount of case drain for that model, disconnect the case drain line from the propel motor and cap the line. Install another hose to the case drain port with the other end in a 5 gallon bucket. Start machine and run propel for 30 seconds. Shut off and check amount of oil in bucket as compared to acceptable amount of leakage from machine spec book. All this does is measure the amount of leakage past the propel motor slippers, which gives an indication of excessive wear tolerances. Replace propel motor if needed.

    Steering wheel is electric and is stuck in the down position.


    it can be a relay, or the steering motor itself. the motor can be removed, but it is tricky to access. 2 holes need to be made in the lower panel to access 2 of the 4 screws holding it on. then, the motor can be taken apart and cleaned. this usually works. if the relay is bad, you have to locate it, it is down by the brake pedal, kinda hard to describe where in print.
