    Default power trim not working

    Does anyone know why the power trim is stuck in the up position? I have a 90 model mariner 50 hp. I don't know anything about this boat because i just bought it and carried it to the water todaY. The power trim worked while in water. and prior to puting in the water. i raised the motor using trim to take out of the water and now it will not work. Does anyone have any ideal what could be the problem? the button will click in the up and down position but no movement to the trim at all. please help! Totally clueless. <br><br>thanks for your input...

    Check the battery's charge level and the power trim wire connections for corrosion.
    Fix minor things (replace wear items for preventative maintenance.) that cause major problems before they break.

    Does the trimmotor run when you push the button (up of down).

    When it runs, push the down button and ask somebody to push the engine down (on the same time), most probably it will work fine now, and try to not tilt the motor to the maximum.

    Have you checked the transom lock to make sure that the motor isn't locked in the up position? Look on the transom brackets for a small leaver or push pin. It might have gottem moved without knowing it. It is used when working on the LU or trim system mainly.
