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.

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.

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.

    • Here is hoping for a dry October.
    • I didn't get the elm creek park hunt this year   I guess I will sit right outside the park and hope they chase them out again.
    • I am not one to post on here much but I am always "Lurking in the shadows". Anyway I have a question about a Grand Prix I bought a few years ago. When I first acquired the car it would up shift into the next gear as soon as you stepped on it fairly hard making for a rather uneventful and slow accelerating process. I figured this was normal as it was the only thing I found unusual. Then after awhile it begin to shake subtly when accelerating in first and second gear after second gear it would accelerate flawlessly. in the last few months it has begun to develop a fairly bad jerk when stopping and then going again. This ONLY happens after driving long distances. It never happens if I drive under 100 miles .Also it only happens about 1/3 of the time after driving these long distances. It will still accelerate slowly until about 3 mph and then it will jerk fairly hard when it does happen. Any Ideas what would cause this? The long distance thing is what confuses me.
    • What a load of dung question.  In your eyes no one could respond with a "rational" explanation. Johnson knew what it was going to take to get into the debates when he decided to run.  He failed up to this point so suck it up. Maybe you and Dave can get together and drown your tears together over a couple cold ones.
    • Do you have any rational explanation why a candidate who is on the ballot in all 50 states, and has a petition to be included in the debates with over 1 million signatures on it, should not be in the debates? https://www.johnsonweld.com/debate?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=tweet&utm_term=GJ-09-23&utm_campaign=debate
    • This was Sunday morning after we set decoys. Maybe the duck dock is to comfortable......
    • Sweety, son and I are both-In. Will try and hold out for a buck but no Deer in the freezer so if it's Brown its Down!
    • I may have missed it when I dozed off in the middle of the "debate", but I don't believe there was any mention of Aleppo in the whole affair...
