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.

First make sure you are not in transit mode. Some outboards have a lever which keeps the motor tilted for trailering. You should have a fuse for the tilt motor, check that. If the pump is turning and it sounds like it is whining you are pushing air and either lost your hydraulic fluid or have an air bubble in the system. Check your fluid reservoir.

I Might Need Some Further Info!
Is It A Single Ram Or Three Ram Trim Unit?
When You Go Does The Motor Push It All The Way Down Or To A Just Over Half Way Position?
There Is A Screw On The Side Of The Transom Brkt's This Is A Manual Release Make Sure It Is Screwed In Fully.
If This Does Not Help Or Is Fully In,Then There Is A Hydraulic Valve In The Trim Pump Motor That Is Leaking /Bypassing
Hope This Helps

Weed eater runs fine till I tilt it down to start trimming then it dies??


Check the gas line that is in the fuel tank . It has a filter on it and if its not down at the bottom of the tank where it should be then its not getting the gas it needs. If you tip it the gas may be too low for the hose to pick up. The hose needs to be on the bottom.

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.

Boat manual


it normal would be on top of the motor were all your electrical comes into the motor .you would see 50 amp fuses next to them there should be 4 round black contactors that have all your wires from your tilt motor and your trim motor connected to them. but if it still works its not the contactors .try this have some one pull up on the outdrive while you hit the switch . if it goes up its your tilt motor has water in it or was damaged by hitting something . water damage is fixable only if its fresh water .salt water you need not waist your time . buy a new one .and if it is fresh water ,if you no how to take stuff apart and putt it back togeather again...the tilt motor need to be cleaned ,up and new seal kit put in it .it should work fine again .

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.

The trim/tilt on my 97 Johnson 150 outboard is not moving. Tilt motor runs. Some time ago my mechanic told me not to run the tilt all the way to the top, which is, I think, what happened. Any ideas on...


Make sure there is not a spring loaded locking lift latch engauged. If there is you will see a little movement and then the motor will sound slower. If there is no movement and the motor runs the same speed with no change you are low on hydraulic tilt and trim fluid.

Please take a moment and rate my answer............ Thanks

How to service a tilt/trim on a 50 hp yamaha outboard. I think the fluid is low as the trim will leak back down after raising the engine.


To check the fluid level, tilt the motor up and engage the tilt lock lever. Open the bolt on top of the tilt/trim reservoir. The fluid should be even with the bottom of the bolt hole. If not add some fluid. When you put the bolt back in, run the trim up and down a few times. That should purge any air out of the system. Always be on the lookout for any leaking hoses or fittings. Hope this helped and best wishes.
