115 hp Evinrude

11 posts in this topic

I have a '98 Evinrude 115 hp with trim and tilt issues. Just got out of storage today and attempted to lift the motor, it seemed very labored so tried to lower it and retry. It jerked funny going down and now won't go up or down. Any Ideas would be welcome.

I would first check the oil level in it.

I would check the battery and connections first

That would make sense for the labored lift and the uneven lowering but now there doesn't seem to be any power at all. Is there a fuse to the electric motor?

There are relays for that system, but I don't believe there is a dedicated fuse for just the TnT. Is the battery fully charged? Does the engine turn over? I guess I would start with connections and battery as well.

Yes, battery is charged and motor turns over.

Can you hear any clicking? If not, the problem is between the relays and power supply, including switch. If you hear clicking, the problem is from relays to the trim motor. Check all connections, grounds, etc. Use a 12v test light to check power in and out of relays.

Thanks for the info, there is no clicking. I did have the battery out for charging. I may have pinched a wire when I put the battery back in. Will have to check in the morning.

Thank you to everyone offering advice. FYI to anyone else who may have a similar problem, it ended up being dirty/corroded brushes in the motor.
