Autopilot connection problems

3 posts in this topic

My autopilot intermittently won't turn left. Its the same with the foot pedal or copilot. It works whenI wiggle the connection for a while, then stops again. I tried putting dielectric grease on the prongs of the male part of the connector, but still does the same. Any suggestions?

I have had this same problem with mine. I make sure the connection for the wire that comes off the motor to the base is secure. Problem does not seem to be with the foot petal or power plug connector. When ever I have a problem now that is the first place I check and it solves the problem for me.

I also had similar troubles. Mine ended up being traced to the plug on the copilot! I took the copilot to a minkota services center! It was under warranty and they replaced the whole thing. End of troubles!!

      Last year I went to the show to buy and thought Reed's would be the best and they came through again. I bought a Helix 10 from them and I got a free mapping chip. Below the price everyone else had at the show or outside the show. Also got a cheaper price on a new MinnKota that integrates with the Helix 10. When all the smoke cleared, I had everything in about 10 days.

      Is the access on 22 still open at least?  I was hoping to get the boat out and chase a few cats Sunday, maybe it won't be an option?

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....
