SOURCE: Converting From 12/24 to Starght 24 Volt

if it is 24v. then you need to connect 2 battery in parallel. since the battery is only 12v.
if one battery is shoing red and the other is sohwing green, that means you are using 12v only, not the 24v.
connetion as follow:
positve of battery 1 to the motor, the negative of battery 1 to postive of battery 2. the negative of battery 2 to the motor.

SOURCE: I just bought a 74 lb Minn Kota trolling motor

I have uploaded a image of the wire system. folllow it carefully. the fuses rating should be no more than than thirty amp. go to your local outboard dealer they sell inline breakers that are designed for trolling motors. i prefer them because you don't have to replace them after a overload. you just reset the breaker.de79e02.jpg

SOURCE: 24 volt trolling motor wiring

Just like a flashlight. Positive to neg, In a loop going to the motor. That is the jump between the batteries, One red wire coming in from motor, it will go to pos, from one battery, the neg will go to the 2nd battery pos. From the 2nd battery neg will go to the motor. That is it, one jumper connecting the 2 batteries, will create the 24 volts. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Show proper battery hookup for 24 volt trolling motor, 2' 12 volt batteries

to get b24 volts from 2 x 12 volt batteries
connect the negative (- ) terminal of one battery to the ground point on the motor
next connect the positive terminal (+ ) of that same battery to the negative terminal of the next battery
connect the positive terminal of the last battery to the power terminal of the motor
so it will be negative to ground , positive to negative , positive to motor or motor control
(-) to ground (+ ) to (-) , (+) to motor
That is called a series connection and increases the voltage available

My son and I have 2 12 volt batteries which should be drawing 24 volts to our trolling motor but is not. We have a separate 12 volt starting battery what is going on.


If you connect 2 12 volt batteries in series to get 24 volts and you don't get it, then one of the batteries has a bad cell or you have a poor connection between the two.

You have a high resistance short either inside the wiring or the lower unit. This will cause a voltage drop. I would be very careful not to keep it connected too long cuz the battery is trying to keep up with the current demand and may explode.

How to wire up 24v minn kota to batterys


if you are trying to wire the batteries for teh 24 volt motor then you need to connect the positive of one battery to the negative of the other battery. then connect the trolling motor to the remaining two terminal of the batteries.

if you are trying to connect the charger to the batteries then each battery should have its own set of wire coming from the charger.these wires should be connected to the batteries in a set not crossed between batteries.

Diagram of 36 volt hookup for trolling motor, i have a factory 24 volt wiring in my boat and I need to turn it into a 36 volt please help thank you


To get 36 volts, number batteries 1 thru 3. connect pos 2 to neg 1, connect pos 3 to neg 2, connect pos 1 to trolling motor controller and neg 3 to ground on trolling motor.
This is only a solution for 3 battery system.
For 4 battery system, connect 4 to 3 pos to pos and neg to neg.
