2004 EVINRUDE 150 hp direct injection trim problem

Model : E150FPXSRS 

THE TRIM WILL GO DOWN EVERYTIME. THE TRIM WILL ONLY GO UP ON OCCASION. I took the pdp panel off and opened it up to look for bad soldering or issues in the board. Everything look good and clean. Does anyone have any other idea of what the problem could be? I can order a used pdp panel for this model for 250.00. Instead of spending 700 on a new one. Also Can something explain how or if I can jump the trim motor directly from the 12v battery? And suggestion would be so m7ch appreciated.Thanks for reading!

Respectfully,

Tekin

There is a blue with white stripe wire that runs to the trim limit switch on the tilt tube. remove the port sidecover for access to the connections. If the wire is pinched, has corroded connections, or an intermittent switch, you will get the same symptoms.  You may need a service manual to trace and troubleshoot the electrical system.

 

For testing purposes, you can use jumper wires to test the trim motor using the heavy blue and green wires that go to the trim motor.

I fix the problem with your help thank you so much! The button on the trim switch was caked up with grease and would not come all the way up. I clean it real good it's now working great.
