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.

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
