If you get a trim sensor alarm you will find the sensor on the port side of the engine. Trim right up and you will sea a small part with three wires going to it, if it's a digital trim. The wiring routes to the starboard side of the wiring loom. If you disconnect the wires you cannot clear the fault. If there is any voltage (around 5) it's the trim sensor that is broke. On some guages I believe you can tell them there is no trim sensor and bypass this. Couldn't do that on line you will need to buy a sensor. But you don't need to re install it. Mind is tucked in the loom where it will stay dry. The guage thinks it's at one trim level so the alarm has gone . This does not affect trimming it running. You can of course reconnect it all and then re calibrate

Neil I keep forgetting are you putting quicksiler quickclean in you fuel ? There was a Mercury bulletin that came out mid 2000's recommending using it to stop carbon build up.

Hi pal test run on a local lake a few days ago went like a dream really happy 👍. I'm not using any quick silver products but I know it may be a problem. I'm hoping this will reduce coking http://www.rockoil.co.uk/cm/images/p...ure_marine.pdf

Had nothing but a good experience with rock oil. MP3 ultra made for dfi 25 litres was around 115 delivered I think
