Re: Size of fuse

Your motor takes a 20 amp fuse.

If the fuse blows whether you use the control box trim switch or the on-engine switch, then the short is likely under the motor cover.  If only the control box switch blows the fuse, then the problem could be in the handle, the switch wiring, or something in the boat wiring harness from the motor.

Thanks for the information.  The fuse does not blow when i turn the key to start engine.  It blows only when i hit the switch on controlls or on the motor.

Then there is a problem in the wire harness, relay holder, relays, or chafed wire touching the bock
