Old minn Kota foot pedal

Post by Tgc1021 »

Was given older model Minn Kota bow mount auto pilot. Don’t know anything about it other then was told it worked until the foot pedal got damaged. Looking for what type of replacement pedal I need. Thanks pics and serial number below.

Your best bet at getting what you need is to contact Minn Kota https://www.minnkotamotors.com/support

I'd almost bet that it used the same pedal as the older Powerdrives, which are NLA and good used ones bring a lot of money. If the plug is flat with 4 or 5 pins in it, that's the one.

If that's not the case, I'm betting it's still not available from Minn Kota unfortunately.

I was able to DIY a foot pedal for an old Powerdrive using some foot switches and relays from Ebay.

If it's available Northland Marine will have it.
Give them a call if you can't find it via their
website, they're always very helpful.

Northland doesn't have it, I tried. I have an original Minn Kota Powerdrive motor that works fine but the pedal is torched and is in the pile to go to the dump. You can't even get the circuit board and wire anymore to rebuild a pedal.
I fish, therefore, I am.

There is a wiring diagram out there for those older Powerdrives, the pedal is pretty simple. I made my own pedal with a pair of DPDT foot switches and a 1kohm log pot for speed control.

I also had a wireless 4 channel relay board rigged up for remote control. Worked pretty slick for what it was, poor man's copilot.
