Okay I have a foot controlled 24volt digital 82 lb thrust motor 2007 model. It suddenly came on when no one was in the boat. Running high 24. The only way it would shut off was by the circuit breaker in the back of the boat. I have replaced all 3 switches on the foot and it's still running high 24. What's up with it? Any ideas? The on/off switch on the left side of the foot pedal cuts it off and on only!

Contact Jones Trolling Motor; he's here in the TFF. It sounds like you have a fried control board. BTW, you should be flipping that breaker to OFF every time before you energize the charger. I believe that MG states that motors can be damaged by charging circuits, thereby necessitating the use of that combo switch/breaker. They made it work like a switch as well as a breaker for that very reason. Your charger may have caused this failure.....
