Trolling Motor issues - What a pain!!

8 posts in this topic

Hey Guys, Fishing on wed nite and the trolling motor stopped at some time while I was in the weeds. Got after it tonite and found the positive wire came out of the connector. Hooked up with one of those big spin style connectors and it seems to be hooked up fine but still no power.

I hooked up to my small vex batt. and it powered up fine.

Hooked up again w/ connector and all fuses look great but still no worky.

Any ideas for this thing?

Thanks!

IF YOU CAN TRY TO SODDER YOUR CONNECTIONS. WHAT KIND OF UNIT DO YOU HAVE?

SAY YOU COULD CHECK TO SEE IF YOU HAVE POWER DOWN TO THE CONTROL BOARD WITH A VOLT METER. IF YOU DON'T IT'S YOUR BOAT. IF YOU DO IT'S YOUR MAIN CONTROL BOARD.

I guess I could solder the connections to be safe.

I have a minn-kota autopilot(probably around a '94 like the boat. One of the older ones thats white.

I didn't think it was the motor as it worked on my little battery fine.

thanks!

say, i was thinking of this this morning. check your plug-in on your boat to see if you the right voltage there. it might be your plug-in is bad.

After looking through everything again after soldering I followed the wire and found an inline fuse that went out :-)

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
