After boat goes back in water the trim indicator shows nothing

Customer Question

after boat goes back in water the trim indicator shows nothing and the trim motor works down only but the leg does not appear to move. Looks like leg is down completely.

Hi Greg. When you hit trim up, can you hear the trim relay back at the trim motor assembly click? Or does it not click?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Does not appear to click hitting trim up

What you would want to do next is test the switch in the throttle handle. The switch has 3 wires. A red, which is always hot. A blue, and then a green. Blue is trim up. What you want to do is pop the switch out and test for power on the blue wire with the trim switch button held to up. Let me know if you get power on the blue wire or not.
