MotorGuide Xi5 Model No. 940800270 Serial No. 9D217906


I bought this Trolling Motor from Cabelas about 2014 or 2015. When the Xi5's first came out. It has worked fine up until now! It worked last fall, 2019, and today I tried to use for the first time in 2020, Aug 6, 2020.
It won't do anything. No lights come on, even though it's getting 24 volts at the receptacle and at the two connects under neath the cover where the lights show. Remotes (pedal & FOB) do nothing even after new batteries. I tried to pair them again & they beep once but no second (2) beeps.
What could be wrong? The closest service center is listed as Bass Pro in Memphis, Tn & I hate to take it there (75 miles away) plus I know I'll have to leave it for 2 or 3 weeks.
I have unplugged it from the "network" 2 Lowrance HDS 2's which have not been updated in 2 years. Networked it doesn't even show up on the Lowrance screen anymore.
Please Help!
