Electric Motor Problem

Recommended Posts

My electric motor (Wireless Motorguide 12V) runs the battery down in about 10 minutes.  I have an onboard charger which seems to charge the battery, but I still can't use the motor for very long.  I'm stumped!  There are alot of wires connected to the battery which I am not sure to what they are attached, including a couple going to the engine (Volvo).  The wiring diagrams included in the owners manual don't really show any battery connections.  I'm replacing the battery with a larger one and would like to get the wiring figured out!!!

EXACTLY ... you need to figure it out as the chances are the system was customized, modified, or otherwise altered. Some pictures might help, but nobody will be able to tell you what's what for sure without tracing the wires and testing the connections.

In any case, take the pictures of battery connections, and mark the wires before you disconnect anything.
