Tohatsu Trim

The trim on the Tohatsu decided to play up last weekend. Works fine on the remote in the up position, but won't power down. Had to use the switch on the outboard which rules out a faulty solenoid. Anyone know if the remote control is prone to faulty micro switches? I'd rather not open it up... but needs must. I traced all the wiring back and cleaned contacts where the wiring loom enters the engine. I'll check the remote end too.

Is that with or without VAT?

Not wishing to be the bearer of bad news, but it sounds like open it up you must.....

On the plus side, if it is a gubbed switch, threee bullet connectors & the big screw on the back of the box to disconnect the entire lever, then you can fit the switch in the comfort of your living room...
