    Question Motorguide Tour Digital Tour 82 lb 24 volt - motor quits running

    Trolling motor is shuting off on it own when I run steady for a while. If I let it set for 4-5 minutes it will run fine for a while. When I'm not in the wind or against the current I have no problems because it's running constant. Any suggestions

    its your breaker. Get a 50amp and you should be ok. You are running it popping the breaker and it auto resets hence you can use it when it cools

    check your connections at the plug and check your plug for heat marks ,also what size wire are you running ??

    Obviously you have taken the time to measure the voltage when the motor shuts off. To help in troubleshooting, run it on constant til it quits with a voltmeter connected. When it quits, with it on constant, check the voltage. If it still has voltage while in constant and not running, the problem will be trolling motor related.

    i have hooked my meter to mine when it quits it retains its voltage when it quits thru all the switches and down to the head unit ...
    mine just has no spin prop issue but power still going down the shaft to the motor head unit...I have not tore the lower end apart yet to see what all type goodies is in there..

    If that is the case, disconnect the orange wire in the head (don't tear into the lower unit just yet) and check the voltage on the orange wire coming from the lower unit. Less than 10.5 or over 12.00 indicates a module problem. This needs to be checked with motor in constant mode and 24V going into the lower unit through the black and red wires.

    I am having the same issues.. I have a motorguide digital tour TR75, 24V. I had issues with it shutting off, being stuck on full power, and sometimes not working at all. Got to the point where it wouldn’t work, thought it was the breaker (had a 100amp on it previously), so I replaced it with the same breaker, checked voltage on batteries, everything checked good (batteries are less than a yr old).. Go to use it and still will not work! Tore the lower unit of the motor apart, it seemed to be getting power but not producing anything. Decided to buy another brand new digital tour TR75 from bass pro, put it on the boat.. and it still will not work right. It seems to lose power and shut off at about half thrust. Any suggestions??

    Since the new one is acting like the old one, sounds like it is a boat wiring issue. Check all the connections from the battery to the trolling motor. These connections should be checked with the motor set to constant, but while it is not working. I guessing bad connections (maybe plug) is causing a voltage drop not allowing the motor to operate.

    I will test the wiring, thank you
