Yes the switch could be bad. Is it on the throttle? Does it work on the engine? I have had my switch go out twice on my mercury.

Why will trim & tilt on my outboard work sometimes and sometimes it will not?


I would look for a corroded ground wire or a connection that has a corroded connection. Clean all ground and hot lead connections, then seal them from moisture.

Tilt trim


Many if not most trim systems have a solenoid much like an old ford that is bolted on the fender well near the battery. Of course make sure all cables and other wires are CLEAN. Often they can appear clean but take one off and use a wire brush. More than likely If all cable ends are clean including the wire inside the cable , the solenoid is faulty. Hope its not the electric motor worn out causing too much drag. Some can be rebuilt.

How does a quicksilver throttle trailer button work


The intended function is:

Trim adjustment is limited by a sensor on the lower unit. This control stops when pushing "bow up" or similar words, limited by the sensor on lower unit.
The trailer button overrides this limit, allowing the lower unit to raise beyond normal running positions, all the way to the fully up (trailer) position.

Tilt trim go up wont go down 2003 johnson 140 hp 4 stroke


You may want to check service bulletin #2002-052. Some of these motors supply too much voltage to the trim switch at the throttle lever and that trim switch stops working. There is an add-on harness #586806 that fixes this. If you can still tilt and trim the motor at the trim switch that is built into the motor housing this is likely the problem.

I have a 1994 150 hp Yamaha outboard motor with tilt-trim. My motor is stuck in the up tilt position and will not tilt down. It is working when I go up, but not down. I have talked to a used parts dealer...


Stop! Dont replace the pump...I would bet that it is the "down" Solenoid that went haywire. I would begin by replacing the Down solenoid...it is a far easier and cheaper fix and if your pump works to raise the engine then that tells me that it is not faulty. The Down solenoid looks just like a starter solenoid and the one that you are looking to replace has a GREEN wire to it. Yellow with a red stripe is for the starter. Blue wire is the up solenoid. So replace the one with the green wire going to it and I bet it will fix your problem.

Volvo-penta aq271c, trim will go down, but not up.no 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.
