Trolling motor question...

3 posts in this topic

I have a bow-mount 55# minnkota with remote. It's about 1.5 years old and last weekend it started beeping whenever it is in use. I thought it might be low battery warning, so I charged it up...and it's still beepin! Anyone have any ideas what this is all about? Thanks

Yep, you accidentally switch the audio modes...

AUDIO MODES UNIT IS FACTORY PRE-SET TO AUDIO MODE 2.

•There are three receiver audio modes available. To switch from one audio mode to another, press and hold both the INCREASE and DECREASE speed buttons on the remote down for one second. The receiver will respond with 1, 2, or 3 audible beeps indicating the corresponding receiver audio mode change.

Audio Mode 1 = All of the normal audible sounds mentioned in this owners manual.

Audio Mode 2 = Same as audio mode 1 plus an audible beep for speed increase / decrease and prop on/off.

Audio Mode 3 = Same as audio mode 2 plus the prop on audible click every few seconds.

NOTE: when the corded foot pedal is in control and the propeller is on, the prop on indicator click will be heard if the receiver is set to audio mode 3.

So that is why it is constantly beepin? Maybe I wasn't clear...it's beeping even when no buttons are being pushed. As soon as the prop starts turning, it beeps every 10-15 secs. Thanks for the info about the audio modes...cuz that "beepin buttons" thing drives me crazy!
