I bought a new motor guide xi5 trolling motor for my boat. I can't get the foot pedal to sync with the motor. Anybody have any ideas?

Most of the reports I've heard about that - it's been a defective foot pedal. 
The more you practice, the luckier you get.

I had to get mine replaced. The one that came with the motor wouldn't sync. That said, I hardly ever use it anyway.

In the manual it says you have to unplug the trolling motor then plug it back in to sync each device.  What it doesn't say is it takes a few minutes for the system to power down.  Try waiting about 5 minutes before you plug the motor in and then sync it, and when they say within 10 seconds they mean it so having a second person helps.

I tried all of that with mine as well. Try turning the foot pedal off and on by push and holding the anchor button. If you don't get any audible beeps, you pedal is bad.
