Power Pole Remotes

Reply
 
Guys, my power pole remotes are not working. I replaced the battery in each one, and the little red indicator light on each remote lights up, but the unit will not deploy when you hit the button. My power pole works perfectly fine from the toggle switch on my console. Have any of you ever experieced this? I am hoping it's not a major thing and that some of you may have some advice on how to start off troubleshooting it. Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Sync?
I don't have a Power Pole, but similar items like the remote for my trolling motor needs to be synced to the motor. Perhaps you lost sync between the PP and the remotes?
Good luck

Maybe
I guess that's a possibility. Thanks. I'm going to call Power Pole tomorrow, but any other feedback is welcome. Remotes have worked perfect for 3 years.

I had this problem and what I had to do to get it working again is reboot it or what is called resink it. An one more thing you can try is open your remote and take the two clips that make contact to the battery bend them in slitely to make a better contact. If both of this don't work then it is your lil black box and needs changing on your remote unit.

Mine is having the same exact problem and is in the shop now. From what they are telling me is that the black sync box is no longer working and have to order a new one. mine is a Lil over a year old.

Sync
Rippinlip Guide, I'm hoping that it will end up just having to be synced again. Is this something that you were able to do yourself, or did you have to bring it in? Not interested in having it go sit at someone's shop during this time of year. Remotes are nice but I'll do without them if that's the case.

Resync
I called Power Pole and they told me how to resync it for anyone who may run into this issue. You remove the cover off the black box and there is a black button on the inside. Push in and release the black button and a light next to it will light up, then hit the up button on your remote 3 times in a row. This will resync the remotes. He said this should resolve the issue. If the light next to the black button inside the box doesn't light up, he said to check the 20 amp inline fuse on the black box wiring. Hopefully this solves it.

no remotes; just ease back to the manual deployment switch and grab me another cold one on your way back!

The remotes are nice, but if it's not an easy fix, it won't be fixed until deer season. It's time to fish, not have the boat in the shop for something that isn't a necessity.

Problem Fixed
Problem fixed. I just needed to resync the remotes to the black box. Took about 2 minutes. Thanks for the input.

Re: Power Pole Remotes
Wondering if the forum knows???

I have a Power pole II that works fine on my walk around fob, but I cannot get the dash one working, also seems to run down the 2032 battery pretty quickly. I've tried several times to hold down the PROGRAM button on the black box but it doesn't light up and doesn't beep so I can't seem to get it into sync mode... Any recommendations on what to do? I can't get the dash remote to do anything but flash when I push a button...
Any help appreciated.
