I would do a check on all your wire connectors and check solder joints. Do you have a voltmeter? That would be a great tool to use to hunt down this issue!
Peace,

If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

tom, i think i fried the speed controller. i have been reading and found that they suggest a fuse between the batteries and the drive section. will check with v.o.m. meter. will install a fuse. kurt250
