Open Question

Wireless trolling motor won't run.

Bought boat with bow mount 24 amp motor.
24 amps at plug.
Battery charge indicator not reading anything.
Changed battery in foot pedal.
I think it's a 2006 model.
MVP400012 if this means anything.
Where do I look next? Seems to be in good shape.

SOURCE: Wring for trolling motor

just hook the two batteries up in series. To do this buy one short cable and use it to hook the positive of one of the batteries to the negative pole of the other. Then use the two remaining poles, one positive and one negative to hook up to the motor. good luck

There should be a couple of allen screws on the shaft that you can loosen, which should allow you to swing the motor head in the direction you want it to be pointing for the desired pedal position. Tighten and carry on.

The heat is developed from to much resistance from batteries to TM, check for loose/corroded connections at batteries, including the jumperwire, also check the size of wire from battery to plug, should be at least 8 gauge if not 6 gauge depending on the length of run. If corrosion has built up inside the wires this will also cause high resistance causing excessive heat build up. I would prolly just replace boat wiring to make sure none of the above problems are present. Use tinned copper marine grade wire that is multi stranded.

Using an ammeter check for current draw and compare that with specs to determine if your draw is excessive. If motor has ever overheated and some of the windings have had the insulation burn off you will have a motor with less resistance and it will draw more current since less back emf is being generated.. Under those circumstances it can overheat and also blow existing fuses. Should that be the case you are looking at shopping for a new motor.

Hello, You have several points to check. #1 check your wiring connections--- plug, plug socket, wiring connections internal of trolling motor, condition of wiring to battery, battery terminal connection & charge of battery. #2 borrow someones DVM (digital multimeter) and check the resistance of the speed control as you turn it without any wires connected to it. #3 if problem not found take 2 aspirin and E-mail me of test results "for further review".

Hot plug connector


if everthing else is hooked up properly and the battery connections are tight i would suspect a loose connection in either the plug or the receptacle. anytime an electrical connection heats up it usually means there is a loose connection or too many amps running through it than what its designed for. remember trolling motors should not be run out of the water for more than 30 seconds as they use the water to cool the output shaft at the prop. good trolling.

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.

Bad control board


If the voltage on your boat's plug drops down to .8v, then the problem is almost certainly in the boat. Trace the wires. You probably have a corroded wire connection somewhere. If there is a fuse in the circuit, check it and it's holder very closely.

Prop spins slow on any speed on the foot pedal


There is a good chance that the 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, 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.

No response


I just put one on my boat today and had no problem with either the test button or running the motor while the boat is on the trailer. Your message said the "battery" is new. Did you get a 24 volt motor by mistake? If so, it won't run on a single battery.
