Question about Minn Kota Powerdrive V2 Bow Mount Trolling Motor with Foot Control Autopilot and Universal Sonar 2 (55 lb Thrust 54 Shaft)
I took the three screws out from the bottom of the foot control. The electrical connections look fine.There seems to me that some parts are missing. When you slide the speed control up or down it touches nor activates anything,same thing with the momentary/constant switch.What test can I run on the motor to be sure the motor is good.Then all I will need is a new foot controller.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

it has an electrical connection problem... check all the connections on the pedal control. your loosing connection making it die and when you kick it it connects again... look for a frayed wire. or a corroded connnection.

Hello dtspins2. Your footswitch is stuck. Disconnect the DC. Remove the bottom of the foot control, check the wiring for insulation broken off and wires shorting out, and disconnect a wire(note color of wires) from switch, reconnect power to confirm motor don't run. Remove the switch and contact your local electrical supply store(may cost less) or marine store for replacement. Good Luck.

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.

My Minn Kota 55 powerdrive had the same problem except mine occurred while it was trailered in the yard. High speed only, everything else worked great. From what I could research the control module is a frequent problem. Took a chance and purchased a new control module and this cured the problem. Maybe this happening and running aground was just concidental.
