Honda 90 Trim & Tilt.

Hi All,

The trim up has packed up on my Honda, down is OK.
It works from the engine side button, but not from the remote.
I've tested the switch on the remote with a continuity meter and it beeps when the switch is activated, so I guess thats OK.
Looked at the wiring and it all looks fine too.

Any guesses?
Cheers

Hi

Call cameron on 01475 744 215 as he is the honda guru but I think it is the switch from what you have said or a bad connection at the other end of the loom.

Test continuity of cable from trim remote to engine. Not unusual to get corrosion or break in wire. If it is cable - look at replacing it with tinned stock, as cheaper alternative to replacing entire loom.

Sorted it last night!
Whilst working my way through the loom with the meter I found a connector that was a bit green inside.
I gave the pins a scrape and a spray with duck oil & it seems fine now.

Incidentally, is duck oil the right thing to use or is there a better product?

Cheers for you help.
