G2 Tilt/Trim Noise

I have a 2018 250ho G2. Recently, when I turn the ignition key to on, the motor makes a noise that sounds like the tilt/trim motor. It seems to change speed, sometimes it’s quiet and slow, other times loud, high pitched and fast. It even makes the noise if the key is off, and I trim the motor from the buttons on the outboard. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks for reading and I appreciate the help.

How long does the noise last, about 10 seconds?

Re: G2 Tilt/Trim Noise

It is continuous. Looking at it a little closer, it appears to be related to the DPS steering. It stops making the noise when the steering wheel is turned to full lock left or right. Additionally, the horizontal round motor between the trim/tilt cylinders gets too hot to touch. This is all in the key on motor off position or, if I trim the motor from the buttons on the motor.Thank you for responding.

Contact your dealer as the steering (DPS) module or the pressure sensors could be at fault.

Dealer says pressure sensors need to be replaced. Impressive, accurate diagnosis over the internet. Thanks for what you do.
