Minn Kota powerdrive v2 55lb half power

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

Need some help. I have searched all over for something close to what im experiences but can't find anything.

 

Motor starting running what seemed like half power. Bought a new battery. Still ran like it was half power. Checked the Volts at battery and is 12.7,

Checked the volts at plug in at the front of the boat(battery is in the back) and showed 12.7v. The battery is fully charged and the volt tester on the motor itself is showing only half charged. I think i'm losing half my power between the plug and the motor itself.

 

Anyone have any ideas?

 

thanks,

 

Mike

If there is anyway to borrow a known good, foot pedal try that, it will tell you a lot.

V2's are known to have foot pedal issues

I went out and cleaned(not dirty) the connections and applied deelectric greasse. Now the tester seems to be working better, but i won't know about the power until i'm on the water this weekend.

 

Thanks for the replies and i will try a foot pedal if this doesn't fix it.

I have had different problems with my foot pedal. I took it apart and cleaned it up and now everything works. Give it a try.
