  • Up/Down Tilt__problems with Yamaha 200

    I need some help. My "Up" switch on my tilt seems to have a mind of it's own. Down works just fine and 95% of the time the Up does nothing. Then everyonce in awhile it will kick in. The engine is a 1988 Yamaha 200 V6. Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks

    when not operating are both switches inopertive th one on the cowl of the motor and the one on the controls You will have to test with a 12 volt test light to see if you are getting power to the solinoid and then test to see if you are getting power to the motor also check your grounds to be sure they are clean and tight you can do the tests very easily by following the instructions in the seloc motor repair manual for that motor I have the same motor and my problem was the solonoid power went in but not out to the motor and I bought a used solonoid on e-bay and works fine.

      pitch the test light and use a volt meter. you hit on everything just right hal, but if you have a poor ground or a corroded wire the test light will tell you nothing. test lights even though they say 12 volts will actually light up at less than 6 volts, which most of the time is not enough voltage to operate the solenoid. i spent 20 years working on automobiles and this was an expensive lesson learned. lol.

        Bassgod-

        Does the up and down trim work when you use the switch on the motor? If so, the trim switch on your throttle/helm control is bad. I had to replace mine on my old Yamaha 200....it cost about $80.

          I didn't even think about checking the switch on the motor. Sure enough that works fine, so I guess it must be the trim switch.

          Thanks for the help everyone!

            Shaun,

            Check the quick disconnect plug between the engine harness and the helm harness. It's likely a little corrosion can occur on the pins and create too much resistance. If you see corrosion, clean it up, and re-try the switch before replacing it.

              I took my control arm apart when my trim switch had issues. You can take the toggle button apart till you find the actual part that toggles. Mine was full of carbon and corrosion. I took a flat head screwdriver to it and scrapped off the carbon, sprayed it with some WD40 and it now works like a champ. No need to spend the $80 if you don't have to.!!!!

              Let us know

                That's sounds good to me! I will give that a try first.

                Thanks
