Power trim and tilt challange on Merc

Postby Stof » Wed Jun 12, 2019 11:39 pm

60 hp 2 stroke merc. Power trim only works going down not up unless I reverse battery cables then it only works going up. I have the same problem if I use the tilt switch at the shift control box or the switch or on the motor. Any advice?

Blue wires under the cowl connected? if so then you have a bad trim relay/solenoid. Once that is fixed check the regulator, they normally don't like reversed cables.
