Ok at the trim pump we need to check voltage on the wires going to the trim motor. The plug # ***** has the wires you need to test. Test for voltage at the blue up trim and the green down trim. Post back with findings. Clicking of the trim is either low voltage to the solenoids, bad relays or bad trim motor. The solenoids # ***** are on the bracket # ***** If no voltage to blue or green check the large 50 amp fuse in the fuse holder large red. If fuse is good then check voltage on the red wires going to the relays when activating the trim. Post back with findings.
