Hello,
Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
The first thing to check would be the sender on the leg, depending on model for instance some use a trim indicator sender on the leg at the pivot that sends signal of drive position, these can come loose and most are adjustable, they can go bad and or stick and there can also suffer electrical issues such as broken/loose wires.
Here's a great write up and pictures of a general merc drive trim senders: http://www.sterndrives.com/supplies/mdtips06.html
Note it may not be the same drive you have, it is just for the pictures as reference.
Thank you!
