Hello Jim. You have lost your power some where. Start with the wire & terminal connections to the battery. Open the bottom of the foot pedal and check the wiring connections there. Note be very careful here for you have the battery still connected. You may have a fuse in line some where blown. You can check for voltage with a VOM(volt meter) on the wire terminals. Good Luck.

SOURCE: how to install trolling motor

If it is a bow mount model, then you basically need a bow mount bracket attached to the bow of your boat. If one didn't come with the outboard, you will have to buy one from the same manufacturer or an after-market one suitable for your boat. If in doubt, consult the local boating or marine store or wherever you purchased the motor or the bracket from.

SOURCE: how do you operate the motor? I have no details as

The pedal has generally four functions:
1) Forward and back on the pedal make the motor go left and right (push forward to turn the motor right, push back to turn it left)
2) Momentary power - the little 'button' towards the top will engage the motor as long as you press down on it.
3) Selector Swith - on the side of the foot pedeal there is a switch with the following settings Con - Off - Mom (Continuous - keeps the motor going all the time, Off - well it's off and Mom - will only go when you press the momentary button).
4) Speed select - the knob on the left controlls how fast the motor goes.

It takes some getting used to but offers tremendous control and hands free operation!

My motorguide x15 trolling motorjust wants to spin around .. it has a remote foot control


Define 'wants to spin around'?

The propeller motor is supposed to spin around :>)

If the whole motor unit is spinning around you need to clamp the motor stem.

For factory support, you can get that from the website.

My trolling motor stopped working suddenly. It is a 96 motorguide 56. It is completely charged. What else do I check. I check 5 fuses by the battery as well.


First you need to check to see if power is getting to the motor. If power is not getting to the motor, then check the battery. If you are getting power to the motor, then troubleshoot starting with checking to see if power is getting to the foot pedal. From there check the switches, and make sure they all have power. If they do, then most likely it is the brushes which could be worn on the powerhead itself.

2. In less than ten seconds, press and hold the "+" and "-" buttons on either the handheld remote or the foot pedal controller

simultaneously.

This could be two things, or three perhaps.

check the seals around the prop as water may be entering the unit. The motor might be seizing with heat. Not sure if it is a brushless motor, but next time it stalls, tap the motor head with a rubber mallet as it may re-seat the brushes if the motor has them.

After 4 years, salt water and storage, it will be overdue for a proper service.

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!

Minn Kota power drive trolling motor will not steer to the right **** huard my minnkot will only steer left. I do not have a foot pedal, use the wrist remote control. even goes left when pressing down...


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.

Trolling motor doesnt work?


Most trolling motors have in-line breakers, I would start there & see if one went bad, then check the wiring under the foot pedal for broken or corroded contacts, then you will have to trace wires & make sure everything is in order starting at the trolling motor plug.

Minn Kota power drive trolling motor will not steer to the right **** huard


It is the circuit board in the foot pedal. You will have to replace the whole foot pedal. This is a very poor design. The thin plastic which protects the contacts gets a little hole which allows water to enter and consequently the contacts corrode. Has happened to me two times in past four years. It might be OK for operation in a dirt-free water-free environment; but not under actual fishing conditions.
