Is this the trim pump you have?graphic

Customer reply replied 13 years ago
Yes that is the pump that is in the boat
Marine Mechanic: briggs archer, Marine Mechanic replied 13 years ago
If you have two wire jumper leads you can test the pump motor by unpluging it and connect one wire to pos on battery and one on neg of battery.Then, connect the other ends to spade pins on pump wire.

I already knew how to do that. The pump works fine. i found the short in the wires that wrap around the controls. everything works now.
Marine Mechanic: briggs archer, Marine Mechanic replied 13 years ago
NICE WORK ! Good find. You know, some of these folks that ask questions , their knowledge wouldn't fill a bottle cap compared to what you know. I must assume that. Sorry. JUST GLAD YOU GOT IT.

Blowing 20 AMP fuse when starting. 2000 Ficht 150 e150fplssm
2000 Ficht 150 e150fplssm ser. no. G04865974. Been having a lot of electrical problems. From no alarm,no crank and no trim.(A first in the 14 years I have owned this motor) I Replaced the key switch, (Trouble shooting found if I removed the kill switch wire from the switch and it would start and run fine.) Another time it would blow the 20 amp fuse, replace fuse and start fine. Next it would blow the 10 amp Fuse (the one by it self between the relays) Then run fine. All of these times are this past two weeks. Never had these problems before. I checked for cut or broken wires and found none. Today I replaced one ignition wire because it was loose on the spark plug and thought all was well. It fired right up and tried the trim switches while it was running and it would trim UP but not DOWN. I shut the motor off and checked all 10 AMP fuses and all were fine. Retried trim and it worked both up and down. Tried to restart motor and NOTHING. No pre-start alarm and no crank but rim worked both ways. Checked 20 Amp fuse and it was blown. The only problems I found was corroded solenoid main cable wires(which I cleaned and applied dielectric grease to them.) Could it be my fuse panel (Power Distribution Panel)? I am at a loss. … read more
