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.

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.

1992 150hp merc black max and hydraulics won't work, sounds like a sick animal.


On the bottom of the trim/tilt cylinder there is a big white slotted head screw usually located on the right side. Turn that out about 3 turns. Have someone help you manually lift the engine and while it is up tighten that screw back up and it should stay. From there you can check your trim lines and check the Cylinder for leaks. Also check to make sure that there is no water in the system. Once the engine is all the way up just engage the tilt lock and you will be able to do anything that you need to without fear of the engine bleeding back down.

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.
