Hello. My name is Tan.

Could I get the engine serial number please?

You should have 2 relays one for up and one for down swap the relays with each other if the engine goes down and not up then you have a bad relay. The relays will be next to each other. Small square boxes. The way to find the relays is to operate the trim switch and follow the clicking sound. # ***** is the relay. http://www.boats.net/parts/search/Merc2/Mercury/30%20Carb%20%283%20CYL.%29%284-STROKE%29/0T409000%20THRU%201B226999/Power%20Trim/parts.html

But I will need the engine serial number to be sure this is what your engine has.
