Yamaha F150 Trim display not working

Took our new engine out today for it's first run in period.

All seemed good, apart from the Trim display is not showing correctly on the Yamaha gauge. The display just shows all bars solid with the top bar flashing.

Had the work done at my local dealer, so he will sort it out, but does anyone know if it's anything obvious that I could do myself to save taking the boat back?

Check to see if the sender is stuck (salt water will jam it up eventually.) It's located under the powerhead, just about on the tilt tube (the axis the motor tilts on.) Should be able to push the lever forward (I think) with a finger.

If it seems OK, trace the wires back and see if your guy forgot a connector somewhere.

Look for a small white plug wrapped up in yellow sticky tape. Bin the two end caps and plug the wires together.

Thanks guys. It's a brand new engine, so this looks more promising.

Where would that plug be located?

It's near the white plug with the blue and white wire that is connected to your instruments. Just look for bright yellow insulating tape, you cannie miss it.

No. Lift the engine hood, it Will be at the front end of the engine.

THANK YOU!!!

Found the connector today and plugged them together... and the TRIM display works!
Looks like it still needs to be set to zero with the engine right down, but that will need to wait until the boat is back in the water for that. But at least it is displaying something now!

I have attached some photos for anyone else who might have the same issue.

Thanks for the advice!
