I have "UP" but no "DOWN" trim on 2002 Suzuki 140HP 4 stoke. "Up" trim works from both trim switches, so I assume switches are good and I have a relay or a wiring problem.

Does anyone know where to look for the tilt/trim relay on this engine?

Thanks..is it 2 separate relays, or are both up and down together a 1 part?

Are you sure about that? Every other post I have read says Blue is Up/ Green is down.

Buy a manual so you can properly diagnose the problem. Both relays need to be working correctly to complete the circuits.

Have you tried going into your local Suzuki dealer and asking if he would order one for you?

I have a 2001 Suzuki 40 hp 4 stroke with the same problem. Intermittant down tilt. Up tilt works fine. Is this fix the same on mine? When I hold the trim down button it makes a arching sound.
