If your i-Pilot Remote shows all of the icons for a few seconds and then turns off, the i-Pilot remote is not able to communicate with the i-Pilot Controller built into the trolling motor.
Click the button below for the Legacy i-Pilot® and i-Pilot Link Systems Troubleshooting Guide.
- Verify the i-Pilot Controller has power.
- For PowerDrive Motors press the “Push-to-Test” battery meter to verify voltage to the motor and check the connection to the foot pedal plug is secure.
- For all other motors verify the motor is turned on, a system ready or power light will be illuminated (on the base of the motor on all Terrova and Ulterra Models).
- Re-pair/re-learn the remote to the Controller.
- Turn the system OFF and then back ON (for PowerDrive models, disconnect then reconnect power).
