Swop the solinoids and try again if then goes down and not up then the solinoid is duff ! if nothing then check the trim switch wires with a multi metre , check wires not broken etc also !

SOURCE: Volvo-penta aq271c, trim will go down, but not pwr at relay

First check the switch-- does it have power, then check the solenoid to see if it works-- there are two. One is for down, One is for up. If you get power from the solenoid-- outgoing-- check connections going to pump motor.

Suzuki 175 trim motor wont trim up but trims down??

There are a couple relays which control the up/down. I'm pretty sure your "up" relay has bought the farm. Easiest way to test is to locate the two relays under the engine cowling, cover, hood (call it whatever) and swap them. That's how we test them. If you swap them you will probably see that it now goes up but not down. Depending on your budget I would recommend replacing both at the same time. Usually when one fails the other is not far behind.
Easiest way to find yours is to follow the wire harness up from the trim motor into the top of the motor and you will then see that wiring go to the two relays. Other wires on the relays are for your trim switches. Power comes in from them, energies them, then they send the power out, down the other wires to the trim motor. Again, just swap the wires from one to the other and hit the switch. It'll most likely go up this time and not down.

Hope this helps,

How to remove trim panels in rear of vw caravelle t5

with a lot of difficulty and utmost care

as the trims age they crack at the holding clips easily
finding good replacements is getting harder

trims are held in with plastic trim clips
some clips button types

others under the edges along the underside of the trims out of sight

you know about them when the trim has resistance as you try to remove the trims

Trims up while running

Check for hydraulic leaks at trim cylinder. Possible that a check valve is leaking or the electric solenoid may be stuck. in the trim up position. I have included a link that may help you. Of course I don't know what unit you are running. Mercury stern drive, outboard etc.

1988 johnson trim wont go up or down replaced relays still wont work

Try going directly to the trim pump with 12 volts bypassing the solenoids, go directly to the green and blue wires, disconnect the relays first, see if it works, if it does, your problem is before the motor, if it doesnt your problem could be bad or dirty brushes in the trim pump motor which usually can be fixed on the cheap !

Replaced motor 01 taurus 3.0 run great but kicked up p1309 after attempting to correct misses real bad got #1 up and used tool to install but dont know if maybe 180 out or other problem replaced sensor but...

does your scanner that read the engine code give you any live data? if so look at the fuel trims, if it shows positive fuel trims on one bank and negative fuel trims on the other then your synchronizer is 180 out ouf time.
