Evinrude Etec 90 - Trim tilt switch/ sensor

Fortunately at the end of the season the trim/ tilt has sarted playing up on the above, its about a 2009. It will go down but it won't raise again. I only noticed it yesterday when I went to winterise and give it a grease before the winter.

Its the upper trim limit switch. The one that is adjustable and stops the engine going going too high. I unscrewed it from the engine and it will start working after I fiddle with it, but now I don't trust it!

I've had a search without success. Has anyone had this problem before? The switch is a 'sealed unit' but it is exposed where it is and obviosuly this one isn't so sealed.

Does anyone know what the part it as I couldn't find it on the BRP website.

Its out of warranty but whats the chance of getting this FOC?

Thanks

Stuart

You may have better luck on Owners Message Board! BRP are very good at fixing FOC out of warranty but I don't think you have much hope in this case

I had similar problem on an earlier version of same engine, I found that a few squirts of electrical contact cleaner a couple of times a year sorted the problem, don't think a new switch would be any better!

Just thinking...this may not be the exact part number for your model of outboard...

...but you can use the link to search for the appropriate part number, using your engine model number...
