Relay switch for power tilt for Johnson outboard motor 40HP

Bosch 12v 20/30A

Posted by on

  • Anonymous May 11, 2009

    I have a problem with my 1987 150hp Suzuki motor. The trim works intermittently on the 189V stratos. Attempted to use the secondary trim switch at bow to confirm switch operation. When trim working, then both switches work, otherwise nothing works.
    Also, my trim position sensor does not work, but I don't see this being related directly.
    Could a relay somewhere be bad, and where would I trace it.
    Additionally- The middle cylinder that I believe brings the motor entirely out of the water has a leak. Would this affect the trim. If so, then why is performance not always affected.

    It looks like a piece of metal inside the throttle may be broken but I don't know enough about it to be sure

Tilt and trim

Check the cable from the helm to the motor. Put a tone set or multimeter on it. If that cable is still fine then check that your new relays are functioning correctly.

OUtboard motor tilt not working

There should be a hydraulic bypass valve screw on the tilt assembly. Usually a large slotted screw driver is needed to loosen the valve. The motor can now be lifted manually, but not with ease.
