    Bravo 3 trim/tilt problem-gctid813876

    My 2005 MAXUM 2500SE, 5.0 MPI, Bravo 3, suddenly trimmed and tilted up automatically. I can depress down the tilt/trim toggle switch on the throttle handle and the drive trims down. However, when I release the toggle switch, the drive automatically tilts/trims up to the trailer position. I am guessing it's a tilt/trim toggle switch problem. Any thoughts or similar experiences? Suggested fixes?

    As you mentioned, up & down toggle switch could be sticking.

    The easiest way to find out...meter the up leg at the trim pump.

      Ruffryder,

      It seems as though the "up" solenoid was shorting out, causing the drive to trim/tilt up automatically. I replaced both solenoids ("up" and "down") and the problem has not been duplicated...yet. I have a replacement toggle switch and harness, as this will be my next stop in the elimination process if I have problem again. I appreciate the earlier response.
