Question about Minn Kota Maxxum 70 Freshwater Bow Mount Trolling Motor

1 Answer

I just purchased and installed a Minn Kota 70 PD V2/AP 60" - 24 volt trolling motor. Whenever I apply the "gas pedal", whether by foot pedal (moment or constant), co-pilot, or auto pilot, the thrust motor cycles on and off, on & off, etc, never reaching a full speed or constant running mode. The left/right steering works just fine. I have checked all of the wiring, plugs, etc and found nothing which effects the issue. The unit is brand new. The co-pilot is from my previous motor which got broken. 970 375-4818 Office 907 903-3880 Cell Thanks!

If brand new and not working properly, take it back and exchange it for one that works!

SOURCE: Minn Kota 54lb hooked up backwards (Pos. to Neg) wont work

Unfortunately, those units have a circut board at the power source and if there is no fuse you more than likely destroyed that board. Take the casing apart (the part attached to the boat) it should be two halves. That inital board you see is probably what is destroyed. Of course before i did that I would look for an inline fuse near where the cables attach to the battery or under the unit in the nose of the boat. There is nearly always a fuse if it came from the factory or dealership with the unit so i'd play a little extra hide and go seek for that before doing anything else.

Best of Luck

    I have lost speeds 1 thru 4 on a minn kota edge 70. 5 still works fine where should i start troubleshooting


    Hello Richard,

    It has been some time since I have been around trolling motors but it sounds if the variable speed sensor or switch is either corroded or burnt out. Since you had the speeds and they are slowly disappearing it sounds if the switch is failing. If you are somewhat mechanical and know how to test using a volt ohmn meter you can check the switch this way to see if it is the switch. If the switch tests fine then your circuit board in the motor head or foot pedal has gone bad.

    Hope this helps some

    On a Minn Kota All Terrain trolling motor, what should the MOM/OFF/CON switch be set to when using the foot pedal manually?


    You should only use the MOM (or momentary) setting when using the push button the foot pedal. Con will just keep the motor running and your foot control will only allow for direction and speed!

    Where can i get a circuit board for my minn kota foot pedal Part # is 9901-200c


    http://www.northlandmarine.com/MinnKotaQuickRef.htm

    You need your serial number of the trolling motor, length of shaft, and thrust poundage.

    or you could call Minn Kota direct and give them the same information at 800-227-6433.
