Ok locate the relays and then the green and blue wires coming from the relays going to the trim motor. Connect the volt gauge in the blue and green wires. Connect the red lead to the blue wire and the black lead to the green wire. Now trim the motor what is your voltage reading? The trim motor must stay connected for this test. We are doing a loaded circuit test of the trim motor to determine if we are getting enough voltage to the trim motor.
