Have Boat Questions? Ask a Boat Repair Expert.
Hello, this is Charles. Thank you for requesting me today.
What year is your trolling motor?
How are you testing the power to the bow of the boat?
Are you near the motor now?
Do you have a multimeter?
Ok can you remove the plug connector on the boat, then use the meter to make sure that you are getting at least 24V to the bow.
I tried to accept your phone call offer. It would not go through.
On your motor?
Ok, like a 12/24V switch.
Great. Now you will need to remove the plate from the bottom of the foot control. Then test for power on the large red and black wires there. This is with the motor plugged into the boat.
I dont understand
ok great. Can you test the foot pedal voltage?
On the bottom of the foot pedal?
The black is on a junction block, the red goes to the control board.
Yes in the foot pedal, you will need to remove the metal plate from the bottom of it.
Can you remove it? The diagram shows it will simply unscrew. With 4 screws
8 screws actually
Looks like this one?
I have it open here.
With the loss of steering and speed, this failure your either be in the foot, or the main control board on the motor/
Unfortunate it does need to go in. The issue being that the parts are very costly for this motor and a bunch of them are NLA. If your est. is too much, you make with to look at the Xi5. It is a much better motor than the Great White.
Very Good choose as well.
You too Sir. Wish I could have helped more.
