Welcome,this question may need more than a single answer. Please post back with additional questions on this at any time.
When you turn the key to on do you get beeps and lights on the SystemCheck gauge? Can you hear the fuel pump run briefly?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
originally I got nothing no power to engine or even when I tried to trim engine and after an hour or so I tried it and yes did get lights and beeps and the fuel pump primes for about 5-10 seconds
Expert:  Jeff G. replied 2 years ago.
Two things here.
First it would appear the battery may not be fully charged. When a battery sits for a short while it can develop a surface charge which could explain the lights and beeps coming back.
The second thing is on the starboard side of the engine is the PDP, Power Distribution Panel. Take the slotted screws out and you will see the fuses and relays. Check each fuse carefully you may have a blown fuse.

it is the port engine checked all fuses all ok
Expert:  Jeff G. replied 2 years ago.
Charge the battery to full charge, not just a quick charge. The system runs off battery voltage, if it is low or not fully charged the system won't work.
Then check the trim followed by cranking the engine.
