Power trim/tilt not working

Hopefully nothing too serious? Engine as perfect as ever but when I lifted the engine out of the water the trim/tilt just stopped working suddenly. Now it is totally dead - either through the throttle switch or using the switch on the engine nothing happens at all - dead as a dodo!!! Engine is about 90% tilted right out - skeg just touching the water.

Anyone got any ideas? Is there some sort of relay to reset etc? Help Nasher!!!

Hopefully but considering the rather prolonged delivery time.......

That is what I am hoping - I assume it will be a pretty big fuse? Will have a look when the weather is a bit better.

It might be worth checking your battery connections too. Mine refused to work immediately after installing the engine-all it was was a duff connection on the battery-but everything else on the boat worked as it didn't draw as much power as the PTT.

Do you still have ignition? and will the engine turn over still?

The PTT will draw a bit of power, but if a fuse has gone, you should probably find out why it has gone in the first place, unless the one in there now isn't the correct size.

I don't know if it's anything like the four strokes, but on mine there's a relay and fuse in the plastic 'electronics box' mounted on the side of the engine block. Check the connections whilst you're at it. Also check the earth wires are all in place.

Spose it might be worth checking the leg can be moved by hand. Loosen the overide screw on the hydraulic ram/pump and check you can raise and lower the leg by hand.

Have you checked the connection behind the throttle as this may on disconnected. This is where the wire comes from the throttle button and connects to the main wire leading to the engine.
