My Evinrude Ocean pro 225 will tilt up but when I press the tilt down nothing happens

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.

Motor will tilt up now it will not tilt down when I press the down switch nothing happens Clint

Have you tried the switch on the motor? If not try that switch with the motor cover off. Does the trim work or do you hear any clicking?

Marine Mechanic: Tan, MerCruiser Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Do you have the motor cover off?

Could I get the engine model number please?

The trim relays are on the port side of the engine under motor cover.
