My motorguide trolling motor recently started giving me issues and is currently inoperable, which is terrible timing because the fall striper fishing is starting to take off
It is a 55lb transom mount saltwater series variable speed motorguide motor. The problem I'm having is that it seems to have a mind of it's own. When I turn on the power switch, I can hear a clicking sound coming from under the control cover, then it jumps into 100% max speed (WITHOUT the throttle control being advanced in either direction).
I think it has to do with the control board on the variable speed, but this is purely an assumption. I also can't seem to find much useful information on the web, or even any place that sells trolling motor parts.
If there are any trolling motor pros out there, please offer my some advice. I really like this motor and it's put me on a lot of fish.
ALL SUGGESTIONS WELCOME!
