I had a similar problem and it turned out to be the trim sender unit.

Silly thought but it could be the locking lever which holds the engine in place whilst towing.

DOH!! Your silly thought was right, I'm an idiot and a first time boat owner if you hadn't guessed. Thanks for saving me a very embarrassing trip to the Yamaha service center..

If I was not shown that it had a locking bar for towing when I bought mine I would probably be on here asking the same question.

Glad your sorted.

Straight from the manual.........

IMPORTANT: Do not rely on the power trim/tilt system or tilt
support lever to maintain proper ground clearance for trailering.
The outboard tilt support lever is not intended to support the
outboard for trailering.

I've seen broken tilt arms and saddles caused by towing the engine on the tilt support arm.

So I shouldnt use the tilt lock bar during trailering? I guess the engine would bounce up and down a bit which would may cause the locking bar to break but if it's not for that then when would you use it? during mooring, storage, etc?

So how do folks support their engines? what is a "tilt support arm" for then?
