The unit doesn’t make a chirp when it gets plugged in. Remote does nothing. Put a volt meter on the power cords coming into the base unit and getting a solid 24+v. The battery indicator on the base unit shows full batteries. The remote has a new battery (tested at 3.28v).

What am I missing?

Is the battery is + side up in the remote? Other than that, idk?

* Check the Circuit Breaker, should be near the main battery.

** I've heard too that the remote can go out/quit for whatever reason.

Battery is in there correctly.

No breaker. The trolling motor batteries are separate from the main.

Put a volt meter on the incoming power. It’s all good. But the output going to the motor maxed out at 2v. Think I have a circuit board issue

Boat Dude was telling me about this trick and found it to be sucessfull for him and some others he read about.

It's going to sound silly, but only takes a min to try.

Folks had the same situation as you.

Take the battery out of the remote....install it incorrectly. Push the button.......Now install it correctly and see if it works.

Told it would sound crazy.......but others have gotten theirs to go by doing that.

You do have a circuit Breaker in your TM system......Right?

Do you have a ON/OFF switch and turn it OFF when not in use?
Or do you unplug the Power to the TM?

Hopefully it's an easy fix. So after you figure it out, you really need to install a circuit breaker. g/l
