power trim tilt intermittant problem

hi
just uncovered the avon searider ready for the boating season!
got a problem with power trim tilt sometimes it fails to work tried it on both front and rear controls but same result
what happens is you go down or up stop and it wont go again unless you go in opposite direction but its intermittant and also different positions
can sometimes go up and and down many times stopping and starting then it does it again. whwhen it fails its like theres no power and no motor sound till you go in opposite direction
any ideas ? or anything i need to do to it

I'm not a boater yet (let's just say that immediately ) But it sounds like the switch to me or a dry earth. Easiest fix first is clean off the battery terminals and rough up the connectors, reattach then try. If it's not that the switch (or the connectors to it) may be also dry earthed. Is the switch on the side of the throttle? If so, is it something that can be popped out?

In car components (where I'm currently more comfortable) electrical components rarely 'half' work. They're either knackered, or not. I'm sure the tilt mechanism (an electric motor) is much the same.

Good luck!

As Neilda says, but as both switches are affected I'd start by checking connections under the engine hood.

You'll probably see a connection that has grown a green fur coat over the winter. I'd start looking around the relays first, particularly the earths.
