Trim and Tilt problem ?

Hello all,
This is my first post on the forum and unfortunately its because i have a problem.I've just come to trim down the outboard and after raising it to retract support bracket i am now getting a rapid clicking sound from inside engine ,on pressing trim down ,but no movement.
I've run out daylight now so can't investigate further so has anyone got any idea what this might be ? This is my first boat and i am not very clued up yet.
Thanks.

IS the battery flat?

Could be the trim solenoid coming on and off because of low volts.

Had the same problem a couple of weeks a go, all lights, radio and other gear working ok but no tilt & trim & the engine wouldn’t start.
Problem wasn’t a flat battery it was the battery isolator, so if your battery is charged OK check the connections & if that’s OK & you have an isolator try connecting the two battery leads together.
NO NOT THE BLACK & RED WIRE FROM THE BATTERY
I meant the ones either side of the isolator
Good Luck.

Check your Relays

I had similar problems last season - turned out to be a relay. It could be your 'down' relay has gone. Easy way to check - swap em over.
You know the 'up' relay is OK, 'cos you tilted the motor up. So swap the relays over and try again. If you now get tilt 'down' and no 'up', you know which relay is gone. Straight replacement job.

On my motor, when you take the hood off, the relays are right at the front - easy to spot 'cos theres two of 'em side by side, bolted onto the motor frame. You can't get the wires wrong 'cos they are shaped connectors and only fit one way.

Its certainly easy to check - and it only costs you a little time....

Happened to me at the start of last year, battery had a dead sell so would not give out enough volts even when charged!
New battery & all sorted

Thanks everyone for all the suggestions , its good to know somebody knows what they are doing ! It appears it was a battery problem ,although it was charged recently, swapped in a different battery and everything is a ok again.
Thanks again
