2015 300hp etec g2 tilt and trim issues

38 hours on a 2015 300 g2 and I can`t tilt up or down. I can hear a noise like it wants to engage but won't. It is the same result with either the main tilt switch or trailering switch. I am sure it has plenty of battery to activate but it just won't go. Worked fine when we put in lake this morning, so it has fluid. 

Tried tapping on relay and checked fuses ... fuses were good. Still no movement. Any suggestions?

Does it work from the Pan hard switch on motor?

Is it a high speed whirring sound? If so, it may be low on fluid or the trim motor shaft not turning the hydraulic pump. Chances are your motor is in warranty.

Thanks for responding BB and CHON...I am pretty sure the problem is in the electric motor that drives the trim and tilt.

I was able to get a bit of movement when tapping on the electric motor, not very much movement but it did go up and down while tapping, then it quit altogether. Relay makes a clicking noise  when trying either direction. Trim makes noises like it is dead battery but battery is fully charged. Thankfully I do have warranty left so to the shop it goes. going to miss the fishing tourney this weekend tho' warranty won't cover lost entry fee im guessing. I appreciate your inputs and will re-post what the evinrude techs find after i get it back next week.   Tight lines everyone
