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.
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.
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.
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.
find the solenoid for the trim it will be a the engine or on the trim motor it self get a test lite and find the power wire on the trim motor and with someone pushing the trim button test the hot on the motor if there is no power it is the solenoid if there is power u my have a brush stuck in the trim motor itself but 99% of the time it is the solenoid u can tap the trim motor and see if that gets a result but dont hit hard
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.
