Customer Question
Hi Dominick.Our minn Kota...

Hi Dominick.Our minn Kota Ipilot remote wont work..put in a new battery but still nothing...any ideas on what we can try to get it going

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.

Absolutely no response from the remote at all...all the batteries are fine.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Marine Mechanic should be aware of?

Nope...the remote just wont turn on
