    Default Riptide / CoPilot not working

    It's been 1.5yr since I used the 24v 10yr old Riptide.. I installed 2 new batteries and verified I had 24+ volts going to the output plug on the bow.. The motor does nothing with the wrist remote so I plugged in the floor pedal (that I never even tried before) and I get a clicking sound from inside the base of the unit and sounds like the direction motor is trying but nothing moves.. While pushing the pedal in every way I saw the prop turn once but not again just clicking sounds and the steering motor sound but it doesn't steer/turn..

    Have you tried tapping lower unit with a hammer or bumped the prop. Old school auto starter trick.

    Thanks.. I cleaned some contacts and the motor is working fine with the foot controller... I have a new battery in the wrist remote but it doesn't have any control on the motor.. I'd like to send the side plate/CoPilot and wrist remote to MinnKota for test/repair..
