Question about Minn Kota Boating

1 Answer

I have a copilot w/ remote, while in the middle of fishing my motor took a complete left turn and kept going and wrapped up the coil in the motor. I unplugged it and plugged it back in and does the same thing and now my remote does not work. The unit works with the foot pedal. Am I safe to assume it has something to do with a connection in the remote add on? Thanks!!!

Yes this sounds like the remote add-on is having issues, or the receiver portion of the remote add-on at least. Hopefully it is still under warranty and you can get it replaced at no cost.

There was a slight vibration to my 15" CVR kickers.. about 15 minutes later it completely stopped working, it's not frozen how about do I go about fixing it?

push down on the middle of the speaker ,does it make a scraping sound, if so that means u fried your voice coil ,meaning if to much power goes into the speaker with being able to keep it cool it heats up so much that it cuts the coil and sometimes the pole that the coil is wrapped on right in half hope this isnt the case but thats what it sounds like....

Dryer stopped in the middle of a cycle. Time kept going, drum and motor stopped. Unplugged dryer, check lint and exhaust hose for build up. Plugged dryer back in, when I select time and hit start, dryer...

The motor tripped..The wiring diagram for the dryer is inside the back cover tie-wrapped to the frame as it sounds like the motor has a trip on it:
To reset the switch unplug the dryer, remove the power cable and back cover completely. two screws holding back cover are under the top cover which is held on with two screws at the rear. Remove the screws then pull top cover back and then lift it off. Remove last two screws and take off the full back cover . On the front of the motor you should see two white wires going into the safety switch for the belt breaking. Push the button on the left to reset the switch (you probably will hear a click) Do not push the right button as that is what got tripped originally . Good Luck Tim

How do you program extra Minn Kota® CoPilot Replacement Transmitters? I have lost my instructions. Thanx

According to my user manual

To learn the ID number of additional remotes, follow these steps:

1.) Press and hold the LEARN button located on the side of the receiver (receiver will emit a continuous tone). A small blunt object must be used to depress the LEARN button (pen or screwdriver).

1.) Press any button on the remote (receiver will beep 4 times confirming that it has "learned" the ID number of the remote and that the programming is valid and complete).

Vehicle "Choking" While Driving

On my 2002 windstar, I had intermittent problems with the engine light flashing while the motor was accelerating or going up a hill, about 3 minutes into a drive following being left alone all night. During this time, the car engine shook and acceleration was poor. Later, the problem was minimal.

Root cause:
The coil block has one coil for two cylinders. In my case, the middle coil fires cylinders 2 & 6. When I cleared the codes and got the problem to occur again, the codes came back at the same time. I removed the cowling to access the col block. When I examined the bottom of the coil, I discovered that a crack had occurred across the resin just under the location of the middle coil.

Autozone has a diagram of the pinouts of this coil block you can download to see if your dual-intermittent cylinder misfire problem corresponds to another coil in the block.


When moisture gets into the coil, it causes the problem. When moisture is driven out of the crack by engine heat, the problem subsides.

Procedure I used for repair:

Access: Remove Cowling:
1. Remove Wipers
2. Loosen Plastic Cowling cover
3. Remove washer fluid hoses from nozzel
4. Remove plastic cowling
5. Disconnect wiper power from connection on drivers side wiper motor.
6. Disconnect wiper fluid hose from connection above passenger front wheel.
7. Remove metal cowling.
8. Change out the coil with three screws - very easy to do.
9. Replace components in reverse order.

Note: While I was at it, I changed the wires and the spark plugs. The spark plubs in the back were accessable but hard to get to without a swivel head socket wrench.

Garage door opener unresponsive.

You need to reset the limit settings. There are three white screws on the bottom of the opener with the cover off. You will need to take the bottom off the gear and sprocket assembly. Turn the middle screw to where the wings are most of the way up and move the trolley to the up position. Put the bottom of the gear and sprocket back on and adjust the two other screws ti make door open and close completely
