tilt and trim gauge not working, Help

5 posts in this topic

Late last fall the gauge for my tilt and trim for my motor went out. I thought it might be a fuse but it is not. Any ideas on where to start. Hoping it will be a easy fix. Thanks AJ

Take a small piece of electrical wire and touch the Neg (-)terminal and the Signal (S) terminal on your gauge, if it goes all the way up (or down) it's fine, and it might be the sending unit on your outboard.

There is no fuse on the circuit except on all gauges (do they all work except trim ?)

Valv,

yes they all work except the tilt and trim, The morning I noticed that it went out last fall was very cold. Maybe that had something to do with it.

if I find out that the gauge is fine, and that it is coming from the motor, then where do I look?

Depending on motor you should have the sending unit on the tilt section of motor, which is where the 2 hanging brackets are. Follow the wires, most times they go inside motor and into main harness to remote.

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
