Hello. My name is Tan. If the drive will raise bypassing the solenoid then you have a bad switch or bad solenoid. On the solenoid apply 12 volts to the small blue wires does the drive come up.

Ok the trim switch is bad at the control or there is a break in the wire coming from the control switch. Remove the switch from control and jump from red wire to blue wire on the switch does the trim go up
