    My 1992 Johnson would go down but not up. I followed the wires to the relay box, switched the relays and it would go up but not down. A $6 relay from NAPA solved the problem. Of course I siliconized the bottom of the relay to seal against moisture.

      It could be a relay or lack of fluid in the pump. Try them both.
