Yes there is. Saw one at a boat show and I believe it was also Swedish. You may want to look for used replacements on the web. I do not know where you live, but there are boats on the Great lakes with low hours because of the short boating season. There are also victims of hurricanes with good engines down South.

Yes, the GPS will consume a slight amount of power even when powered off. Most people call this "pulse-power" in the electrical industry. Also, as an example at home, if you have a cell-phone charger plugged into the wall, but do Not have the cell-phone plugged-in and charging - the power adapter still drains a very small amount of power and does in-fact use electricity just because it is plugged-in. On a 21-foot Bayliner, I recommend installing a Battery-Saver at the point of the battery, which automatically cuts all power to the battery when it reaches a certain low-level. Then when you need to start the boat - you press one button on the Battery Saver - and it gives you enough power to start the boat and enjoy your water experience. I also might recommend swinging by an auto-shop that has a rolling-battery-tester just to be sure you battery is still good. Even a brand new battery can be defective at day-one or months later. Have a qualified person test the battery to see if it is holding a charge correctly (while the GPS is ON and while it is Off.) The results will tell you the true story.

Testimonial: "Thank you that was very helpful! We also discovered the off switch on this unit is also a dimmer switch. We could not see in daylight it was still on."
If this is an inboard/outboard you have 2 relays for the outdrive. One is for UP and the other is for Down. If this is an outboard you may only have 1 relay.
You need to work with what is there to diagnose the problem. The down relay is working. It has a wire that goes to the pump on the transom. The UP relay also has a wire that goes to the pump. Disconnect the working wire from the Down relay and put the wire from the UP relay (to the pump on the transom) in its place.
Switch up/down wires if this is an outboard.
This will make the Down relay work the pump in the opposite direction. If the pump itself does not work both ways the pump is bad. If the outdrive now goes UP the pump is good.
Most likely the UP relay is bad. But there is a Tickler wire on each relay to make the Relays work. Check for Voltage at the Tickler wire-when you press the Trim button for UP position. If you have power at the Tickler the Relay is bad if it does not respond.
Make sure you get the proper replacement part. Most Relays are Negative ground. But boats can use Isolated relays which do not ground through the case.
This second type of Relay may have the same number of terminals but internally it is different.
I also have a Bayliner with the OMC King Cobra in it and had to work on my relays too.

cobra is telling me ford so if you are looking at the motor
the starter is on the left side under the exhaust manifold
it will have 3 1/2 in bolts holding it in make sure you un
hook the battery before removing the starter ///
the battery wire on the starter is a 5/8 or 11/16
wrench// that's all you need to remove the starter
i hope this helps you

Should first have some one look at the shift in the engine compartment while some one runs it from the control box. If no movement, would be the cable.
Then undo the bottom drain plug and see if the oil is full of metal shavings. Yikes
Last see if the shifter going to the lower is actually moving when you shift.
