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 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.

    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
