      Where is tilt/trim switch located? This happened on my Suzuki OB where the switch was located on the remote throttle. I tried replacing tilt/trim selenoid on the engine block but what I ultimately found is that years of using the remote had "pinched" the signal wire within the remote and essentially cut it so signal was not being sent. Took apart remote, patched/soldered wire and the OB raised up! :-) Check wiring....is moral of the story.

        There is one switch at the helm and one on the engine, none are working.

          Check the trim selenoid then...it essentially acts as a relay...may have gone bad??? Does it tilt down? If it does neither then I'm at a loss....

                +1 with Chief Alan on the fuse. If fuse is OK, then trace wiring from fuse through to tilt hydraulic pump, checking with multimeter you have 12V when the switch is engaged.
