I have a MotorGuide trolling motor, 45 lb, foot control, that I bought new from amazon last year. I installed it on my boat about 8 months ago but did not have a battery at the time and didn't really need one. I went on and installed it with receptacle and plug mounted on the jon boat. This weekend I put a new battery in the boat and hooked up the trolling motor,
Nothing!!!!!!!!!! not even the indicator of batter power remaining. I know the battery is good because I can run another motor off the battery.

What in the world could be the problem? I'm mechanicly handicapped so please don't respond with anwers I can't understand.

Thanks in advance
