    motor seems to not have full power,I checked the wires and it has the wires from front to the battery which is under consel,the wires get alittle smaller, battery is a blue top new and charged- could it be wires or do the trolling motors go bad minn kota 55 -6 years old i think

    Trolling motors definitely go bad after a while, especially the old 5-speeds. If the wires were to small it would build up resistance and pop the breaker/fuse. If it's just missing the highest speed then the controller might be worn out.
     

  3. Check wires going to plug also make sure that you nuts are very tight on battery I had this same thing happen and I thought it was the tm but it ended up being loose connections
