Customer Question
No tilt n trim...

No tilt n trim and ignition seems dead. All but the alternator switch work

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.

Both batteries are fully charged and putting out 12 volts. Tilt and trim won't work and ignition won't turn over engine. Was working fine 2 days ago. Only thing I did was charge both batteries, and I checked the wiring to the fuel gauge. Fuel gauge does not work. and wasn't working before.
