Hi Jim, My name is***** will be glad to try to help. If the grip is getting hot then there is high resistance in that circuit. Take a close look for damaged or corroded wiring and connector pins. If okay check for good ground and possibly a solenoid problem in that circuit getting too much resistance and backfeeding the circuit. If so the solenoid will need to be replaced. Let me know

Check all is good, does the joystick get hot or very warm? It has a solid state board inside by the control switch..

The board will get warm but it should not be getting too hot to the touch.
