    Hi there, I’m having problems with the Power Tilt on my outboard.
    The motor: FT9.9G Yamaha 2008 high thrust.
    Symptoms: when pressing the UP/DOWN switch, the power dies off soon after an initial power kick as if the battery was flat.
    The battery is in good condition, have checked the switch and contacts for resistance and all seems to be ok however, I cannot check the contacts on the electric motor powering the hydrologic ram and cannot test a black sealed unit where all wires sink into. (have no idea of what this black unit is called and what is for)
    Anyone out there have experienced a similar problem and could point out the way to fix it please?
