Have twin outboards on an Outrage.
Today I fully trimmed /lifted both engines to do some cleaning. When I was finished, I tried to lower both but only one went down.
I still have power to the other trim motor because I can trim up, but not down.
Any ideas?

Could be switch or relay. On OMC's the relay is under the cowling under plastic cover. Upper relay is for up and lower one is for down. About 1" black cube that unplugs. About $28 each. You can switch them around and if the motor goes down and not up,then it is relay. Good luck.

Thanks for the help.
I switched the relays and then the engine would not trim up. Purchased a new relay and all is well.
Thanks again.
