I keep getting a trim fault alarm on the port motor. It shows up on the speedometer gauge. I can't clear it. Any ideas? Its smart craft version 2.8.

Hi JoeyP,

Have you removed the cowling recently? As in just before the alarm showed up? I ask this question because I had a fault sensor alarm show up on my gauges and discovered a wire was dislodged when I had removed/replaced the cowling.

I checked my service manual for trim faults. That alarm indicates (hi)trim sensor circuit is shorted or (lo) Trim sensor is open. Possible root causes -wiring problem or sensor problem. You might want to check the wiring on the trim sensor itself. I believe if you till the motor up the sensor is located next to tilt lock lever. There is an easy test for the trim sender unit. Let me know it you want the info.

yes, that's what happened. I checked for loose wires but did not see anything obvious. Please send me the info. Thanks much.

It may be that the trim sensor has gone bad. I'm trying to find out now from Ocean Beach Central if it covered under the great promised warranty.
