Walked outside last night and my trolling motor was running on high. The only way I could turn it off is by turning the circuit breaker off. None of the switches will turn it off. Foot switch, high bypass, or monetary on-off switch. Any ideas as to what is going on?

It's a bad module. Yours must not have the on/off switch on the side of the footpedal. That switch cuts the current to the module and without it, the module is hot all time the trolling motor is plugged/connected. The module has shorted and causing the trolling motor to run all time. Call me if I can help.
