Yes the 112 is the best Auto Pilot. You control everything from around your neck. Waypoints last fishing hole. The coolest thing when you go to a big lake and the water fluctuate day today, your waypoints on the remote keep you in the same depths you fished before in that spot and has recorded your fishing hole so all you do is it resume and your trolling motor will guide you through the last way you fished the spot. All you have to do is kickback and hook the fish and hit pause reel the fish in and hit resume and you Auto Pilot will keep you in the same depth of water and on your course you saved last time you fished that hole. Way Cool!, Only saves tracks for 250 yards safety.

In the shaft about half way down there is a splitter that may have came loosen. I fixed mine with black tape. Not ideally what you want to do. But I have the same problem with mine on the lake and did a quick fix.

Do you have a remote-less unit Or a remote unit. Being a I Pilot I would think you do have a remote, if you left it in the box the unit is always looking for a signal that controls the computer connection.

Take the remote and remove from I-Pilot so that the system goes into manufacturing manual

I don't know what you mean by it doesn't work right in water. Is the prop spinning correctly in water? If not, check the shear pin, it may be broken. If the motor bogs down, it may need to be dried out more.

Make sure the motor turns freely by hand. If not, check to be sure there is no foreign material wrapped around the shaft, like fishing line or weeds.
if the motor spins freely and still won't run the brushes may be stuck or worn out.

I have two deckhand anchor units. I ve tested both on battery, and both went up. I replaced switches, and I get nothing, but I heard a light click coming from unit. Is the motor bad?

Minn Kota... | Answered on Jun 04, 2019

the coil pack is likely bad especially since you changed the switch. call minkota and get the bench tast info (very simple) and then order and replace the coil pack about 26 dollars. be very careful how you put the magnet assembly back together and mark the position of the case on the outside before disassembly. order a new seal kit and use locktite on the shaft again when reassemling to seal the shaft tube for water. dont run motor uout of the water much as it uses the water to cool the shaft and you can damage the seals. good luck.
