Co-Pilot not working right?

3 posts in this topic

My Minkota co-pilot is not working all the time. Sometimes it is slow to respond, sometimes you have to push the button several times before responding, or it simply will not respond at all. I replaced the battery in the controller but it did not help the issue. The motor works correctly with the foot control. Any ideas for this? Thanks in advace!

Did you check to see if the connections for the co-pilot are dirty/corroded?

It could be the button contacts on your remote. If I remember right the rubber membrane will come off when you split the unit and you can clean the contacts on the circuit board and rubber membrane. The contacts on the rubber are usually the black knobs on the membrane. Use alcohol or just water on a lint free rag.

I end up doing mine at least once a year when they become less sensative.

        Oh, says the guy that just took the plunge! I'm sure it will do your little pan fish ok. Let me know if you need a few Walleye's to try?

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.
